ENWIN Team Conducting Water System Flushing Until October

Windsor, ON: Recognizing a need to maintain a safe level of water hydrant pressure to serve our community, ENWIN is conducting its Water System Flushing program across Windsor. This is part of an annual operation that starts in April, to test hydrant water flow throughout the city, and ends in October.

Customers located in the targeted flushing areas may notice some mild colour and sedimentation in their water during the period when the flushing is taking place. This is NOT harmful and should clear up quickly.

ENWIN recommends that customers follow the guidelines listed below, when system testing is underway in their area:

  • Fill some containers with water you may require during the duration of the work.
  • Laundry may be damaged due to discolouration of the water. Please avoid doing laundry until the flushing has completed work in your neighbourhood for that day.
  • Try not to run any hot water taps, as some discoloured water and sediment may be drawn into your hot water heater.
  • When the system flushing is finished and you notice discolouration, flow cold water through your interior faucets until the water is clear.


ENWIN's schedule for upcoming areas of testing is advertised every Saturday in the Windsor Star. For daily information about where we are working, customers can follow us on our Twitter feed, @enwinutilities.

There is also a link from the home page of the WUC website at which will show customers the progress of the project and the locations where we will be testing. (direct link to the map is:
