Pipe Patrol Program

Important Notice

EnWin pipe patrol will be testing and cleaning the watermains and fire hydrants in neighbourhoods throughout the City on a predetermined, basis starting in April and ending in October. The area targeted will be advertised in the Windsor Star prior to commencing.

Customers located in the targeted testing and cleaning areas may experience some mild colouring and sedimentation in their water during the period that the testing and cleaning is occurring. This is NOT harmful and should clear up quickly however, we ask that you follow the guidelines listed below:


  • 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 PIPE PATROL 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 PIPE PATROL is finished working, and if you experience discolouration, flow cold water through your interior faucets until the water is clear.

  • Highway 401 to the North
