CITY OF PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE OPERATIONS DEPARTMENT
WATER MAIN FLUSHING PROGRAM
The week of Sunday, August 11th to Friday, August 16th, 2019 from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. nightly the City of Portage la Prairie will be conducting its annual water main-flushing program in the Mellenville, and Old Bridge Road areas.
Please be aware that the water may be turned off at any time for a short duration during the night in the Mellenville, and Old Bridge Road areas.
To ensure minimum amount of disruption, the City of Portage Operations Department suggests you do not use any hot water until you have run your cold water taps to clear the line of any discoloration that may occur during flushing.
The purpose of this program is to wash out any deposits from the underground water mains and to continue to provide the residents of Portage with quality potable water.
