Welcome to WUC
At the Windsor Utilities Commission, our mandate is to deliver an abundance of clean, reliable, and safe water that enhances the quality of life of Windsor's
residences and businesses.
We are proud to deliver tap water into our customers homes that exceeds Ontario's water quality standards. Clean water plays a fundamental role in
helping to establish the quality of our lives.
When watering, be sure to hit the roots; wetting the leaves and flowers just wastes water.
System Flushing Operations
Enwin Water will be performing flushing operations on the water system throughout the City of Windsor on a predetermined, weekly basis starting in April and ending in October. The area targeted will be advertised in the Windsor Star in the Saturday paper immediately prior to commencing.
Customers located in the targeted flushing areas may experience some mild colouring and sedimentation in their water during the period that the flushing is occurring. This is NOT harmful and should clear up quickly. We ask that you follow the guidelines listed below:
- Fill some containers with water you may require during the duration of the work.
- Laundry may be damaged due to discolouration of the water. Please avoid doing laundry until the flushing has completed work in your neighbourhood for that day.
- Try not to run any hot water taps, as some discoloured water and sediment may be drawn into your hot water heater.
- When the system flushing is finished and you experience discolouration, flow cold water through your interior faucets until the water is clear.
If you have any questions regarding the flushing operations in your neighbourhood, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
