2019 Water Main Flushing Schedule

Notice of Water Main Flushing

August 6-16, 2019

The Town of Wolfville wishes to inform residents that flushing of water mains is scheduled to start on Tuesday, August 6th, 2019 . This process is necessary maintenance of the water distribution system throughout the Town.

Included with this notice is a proposed schedule of areas we will be working in each day. The schedule can be affected by weather or other operational issues and therefore is subject to change.

Surrounding areas could also be effected, outside of the scheduled areas.

Full schedule download:  2019 Water Main Flushing Schedule

During flushing, residents may experience discoloured water or low water pressure. If you experience discoloured water, simply flush your system by running the cold water for several minutes. This will help eliminate any dirt and/or air that may have gotten into the system during the flushing process. It is best to flush through a tap without a strainer such as a bath tub or outside hose bib.

If you have any questions or concerns related to the interruption, please contact the Wolfville Public Works Department at 542-2382 or the Water Department at 542-5767.

The Town of Wolfville apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.

Remembering former Councillor Raymond A. Hynes.

The Town flag is flying at half-mast today following the sad news that Raymond A. Hynes, former Wolfville Councillor from November 4th, 1991 to November 14, 2000, passed away yesterday.

Notice - Changes to the Town’s website.

Earlier this year we conducted a survey on public satisfaction with our website.  We gathered the information provided and have now begun to make changes.  You will now see a change to the structure of the site. 

We will be reducing the main sections to three in total – Town Hall, Experiencing Wolfville and Learning in Wolfville. 

Over the next 6 – 8 weeks we will be updating and revising the information within those three sections to make them as user friendly and succinct as possible. Our goal is to go live with the revised content beginning of October.  At the same time, we are researching the steps to make the website accessible for everyone and will be developing an implementation plan as part of the Town’s Accessibility Work Plan. 

Thank you for your patience as we make these changes, our goal is an improved and up to date website that can more easily be navigated by all.
