Starting Saturday, May 5. the City of Winnipeg will be cleaning about 318 kilometres of water mains in south west portion of the city. City crews will be cleaning water mains seven days a week from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm until September.
One or two days before the cleaning the City will hand deliver a letter and brochure to your residence (see if we can attach them to the web).
The day of the cleaning a blue flag will be placed in your front yard so that you will know when we are cleaning the water mains on your street.
The city will monitor water quality throughout the program.
