Annual water main flushing program starts May 31, 2021



The Town of Carbonear would like to advise property owners that the annual water main flushing program starts May 31, 2021.

May 31—June 4 Areas West of the Community Centre & north of Island Pond Brook
June 7—June 11 St. Clare Ave. and areas between Chapel Hill & Crocker’s Cove
June 14—June 18 Southside of Carbonear including Powell Dr. to  Saddle Hill; Pondside Road; London Road including connecting streets and Forest Rd.


During this time some discoloration and reduction in water pressure may occur.  Residents are asked to refrain from washing clothes and other related activities when flushing is taking place in your area.

If you notice discoloration, please run the cold water tap (preferably one without a screen such as in the bath tub) until the water clears to remove any sediment that may have entered their service lines during the flushing in their area. Discoloration in the water will be temporary.

We appreciate your cooperation & apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
