Watermain Break Impacting Some City Residents

A watermain break in the uptown area on Wednesday is impacting residents in parts of Saint John.

The city says some residents may have to flush their water occasionally over the next few days.

That includes those living in the uptown area, north end, Millidgeville, and on the east side.

Residents who have been away since Wednesday should turn on their taps for a few minutes to flush out the water in their plumbing.

“This will remove the water that has been sitting in the pipes while you were away and will draw cleaner, fresher water into your plumbing,” the city said in a news release.

But if you have been using your water, city officials say you do not need to do anything else since you have effectively already flushed out old water.

No boil water advisories have been issued as a result of the watermain break.

Residents who have questions can contact the city’s Customer Service Centre at 506-658-4455.
