WHITBY, ON July 14, 2016

Due to a power disruption at the Bowmanville Water Supply Plant.


As a precautionary measure, customers who experience low water pressure are asked to flush out internal plumbing after the water pressure returns to normal—to do this, turn on a cold water tap only, and let it run for approximately five to 10 minutes.
