What to do or expect:

Discoloured Tap Water

Discoloured water is still safe water. Sedimentation (usually iron deposits in the metal pipes) occurs as a normal part of the water distribution system.

If your water is discoloured, flush your pipes as follows:

  1. Turn on the cold water tap that is closest to your water meter.
  2. Let it run until the water turns clear. This may take 5-25 minutes.

Potable Water

The City of Kingston emergency management plan suggests that each household has at the ready four litres of water, per person, per day for drinking and bathing.
