The Town of Prescott is doing watermain flushing this month.

The town says this will be done between 7:30am and 3:30pm. Prescott says watermain flushing is done to improve overall water quality. This flushing may cause temporary water discolouration. The Town says this is normal and is not a risk to health and safety.

If your water becomes discoloured, Prescott recommends to run your taps until the water runs clear. They also suggest running a tap in your home before doing laundry.
