Water and Sewer Flushing Program

As part of regular maintenance, water main flushing and sanitary sewer work is done throughout the city. You may notice crews at fire hydrants flushing water down the street or trucks at manholes during the summer.

Water Mains

The City of Estevan will be flushing water mains to ensure good water quality for all users of City water.  This work includes the turning of main water valves around the City and flushing large quantities of water from various hydrants in each area. During this process you may notice a substantial drop in pressure, this will be brief.  As well, discoloured water is possible during the days your area is scheduled for this work (see schedule below), please run a faucet, (bathtub is best), for a few minutes until the water is clear again. Please contact City Hall at 634-1800 if issues persist.

Sewer and Storm Sewer
Sewer flushing helps clean and remove residual debris from sanitary mains, by directing high-powered jets of water through the interior of the pipes.
Flushing trucks release pressurized water through the sanitary sewer main to remove any buildup. During the periods of jetting securely cap basement floor drains.

You may notice an odor in your home from drains. If you do, open windows for a short period of time and run water to ensure all traps are full of water.

Storm sewer will have no effect on homes and businesses.
