Sanitary Sewer System Flushing - Aug/Sep 2017

SANITARY SEWER SYSTEM FLUSHING 

The Town of Wolfville will be flushing the municipal sanitary sewer system for approximately 3 weeks starting August 28, 2017. 

The area being flushed this year is bounded by Gaspereau Avenue and Bishop Avenue and from Main Street to Highway 101. Including Maple Avenue and the corner of Chambers Close and Bigelow Street. 

Click this map for the streets included in the 2017 schedule.

Flushing is part of an annual maintenance program to remove grit, and greases from the sewer mains. This helps prevent sewer blockages, odour generation and premature wear of the mechanical components.

The sewer cleaning process uses a high pressure water jet to scour the pipe clean. When the water jet passes through the sewer main, the water pressure draws air through the pipes. This air movement has the ability to push out, or pull in the water and air held inside your plumbing and the U-shaped traps associated with the plumbing fixtures. 

A dry trap can sometimes allow sewer gas to enter resulting in an odour in the home. If you notice an odour, run water down the sink and bathtub drains, flush the toilets, and pour a pail of water into each basement floor drain. This will replace the water needed in the trap to prevent odours from entering the home.

The work will not affect the majority of homeowners or cause any disruption to service. If you do notice anything unusual please contact Public Works at 902 542 5767.  

The Town of Wolfville apologizes for any inconvenience and appreciates your patience and understanding during this maintenance.
