Brown Water May Temporarily Return: City

August 31, 2015 11:10 AM | News

Brown WaterSome Winnipeg residents living in western parts of the city may notice discoloured water this week.

The city will begin feeder main work on Tuesday, shutting off the feeder that crosses the river in the process.

Areas most likely to be affected include:

  • Daniel McIntyre and St James; from Wellington Avenue to Wolseley Avenue, and from Dominion Street to St. James Street
  • River Heights; from Wellington Crescent to Corydon Avenue, and from Waverley Street to Kenaston Boulevard

Residents around these areas are encouraged to check for discoloured water tomorrow before using their water. Discoloured water may be present for a day or two, the city says.

Residents that notice their water is discoloured should:

Turn on a cold water tap and let the water run for a few minutes. It is best to use a bathtub tap as there is no screen to trap any sediment.
