Watermain swabbing — Tottenham

Posted On Monday August 26, 2019

Please be advised that the Town of New Tecumseth in conjunction with Corix Water Services Inc. will begin swabbing the Tottenham Water Distribution System (cleaning the water mains) between the hours of 9pm and 6am daily starting September 3.

This process will take approximately seven (7) weeks to complete. Anticipated date of completion is October 18. Town staff will notify you of the swabbing process at least 24 hours before it is to occur in your immediate area. 

During this time, DO NOT use your water for any purpose (i.e. cooking, laundry, dishwasher, flushing toilets, outside taps, etc.). Due to the nature of the swabbing process, your immediate area may be impacted more than once. Noise is an unfortunate side effect of this activity and every effort will be made to minimize noise during the work activity. We recommend that services with private hydrants have their hydrants flushed following the swabbing process.

Thank you for your patience and co-operation. We regret any inconvenience you may experience as a result of this process.
