PUBLIC NOTICE - WATER TOWER MAINTENANCE
Posted On: Tuesday, April 13, 2021
Water Tower Maintenance
The Town of Renfrew wishes to advise that major maintenance is being performed on the Water Storage tank beginning on Sunday May 2, 2021 to Monday, June 30, 2021. During this time the water distribution system may experience variations in system pressure and potentially disturbance of sediment that would cause discolouration of water. If discolouration of water is observed, residents should run the cold water to drain until the water returns to a clear condition. Variations in pressure may cause disturbances to fire alarm system monitors and other process equipment.
The tank draining will result in flow of water in the ditches on the west side of Gillan Road from O’Brien Road to Hall Avenue and this condition will be monitored by staff.
During this period water users must refrain from drawing large quantities of water from the distribution system (example - flowing water from hydrants).
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Department of Development and Works at (613) 432-8166.
