City Warns of Discoloured Water as Repair Work Begins

Residents living in northeast Winnipeg may experience discoloured water this week as the city performs water main work.

The scheduled work is to take place on Molson Street at Grassie Boulevard starting Tuesday at 8 a.m.

Water service will not be disrupted, but tap water may be temporarily discoloured for some residents in North Kildonan, Harbourview and the north part of Elmwood/East Kildonan.

Discoloured water events typically don’t last long. If discoloured water persists for more than two to three hours, residents should call 311. Discoloured water may not smell, taste or look pleasant, and can stain laundry.
