City to conduct maintenance to Water Transmission Lines


August 19, 2016

MONCTON – The City of Moncton will be performing required maintenance to the water transmission lines during the week of August 22. Due to this maintenance, water will be re-routed to eliminate any interruption in service for Moncton and Dieppe residents. However, some residents may experience discoloured water during this period. The City will be monitoring water quality extensively during the process. 

If residents experience discolouration in the water, they are advised to open hot and cold taps for 30 minutes to flush their internal plumbing. If the discolouration does not clear up after flushing, call the City’s 24/7 dispatch line at 506-859-2643. 

The discolouration of water is caused by a manganese build-up which is not harmful to your health. However, if your water is discoloured, refrain from doing white washes as it may stain clothes. 

The City apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciates the patience and cooperation of customers/residents.
