Water interruptions expected for Kincardine West in Alexandria on July 5

ALEXANDRIA, July 4, 2018 – On Thursday, July 5, residents on Kincardine West, in Alexandria can expect a temporary interruption in their water services. The North Glengarry Water Works Department will be turning off the water sometime after 9 a.m., so that staff can replace a defective water distribution valve.

This work is being performed as part of North Glengarry’s annual water distribution maintenance upgrades. The municipality has invested $30,000 in water infrastructure improvements this year.

Affected residents are located on Kincardine West, between MacDonald Boulevard and Main Street; and on Harrison Street between St. George Street and Kincardine West. Water is expected to be restored after the work is completed later that day.

After the water is restored, residents are asked to turn on their taps for at least five minutes. This will help clear their pipes of any residual sediment.

Work on this project is weather dependent. In the event of inclement weather, the scheduled work will be completed on the next possible date.

For any questions or comments please contact the public works office at Tel: 613-525-3087.

How will I be affected by the work being done to the water system?

Your tap water will be safe to drink, but during the flushing process taking place in your area, you may notice the following changes:

  • Your water may become cloudy or discoloured.
  • Your water supply may be interrupted for short periods of time
  • You may experience lower than normal water pressure.

Please contact the North Glengarry Water Works Department if your water remains discoloured after running your taps for more than 20 minutes. The Water Works Department can be reached at 613-525-3087
