Watermain break impacting areas of the City

Due to a watermain break in the uptown area yesterday, residents may be required to flush their water occasionally over the next couple days in the following areas of the City:

  • Uptown area
  • North end and Millidgeville
  • East side

What should you do?

  • If you have been using your water over the past few days, you need to do nothing else, since in using the water you have effectively flushed out old water and brought fresher water into your plumbing.
  • If you have been away and not using your water during this period, it is recommended that you take a few minutes to flush out the water in your plumbing. This can be done by simply turning on each of the water taps for a few minutes. This will remove the water that has been sitting in the pipes while you were away and will draw cleaner, fresher water into your plumbing.

Saint John Water thanks all residents for their cooperation and support. If residents have further questions or concerns, please contact the Customer Service Centre at 658-4455.
