Domestic water shutdown Friday for Ontario Hall

A domestic water shutdown is planned for Ontario Hall on Friday, March 16 between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm to permit Physical Plant Services to refurbish eye wash stations in the building.

During the shutdown period, there will not be domestic hot or cold water for flushing toilets, hand washing, safety showers, eye wash stations or kitchen use, etc. Building occupants and visitors should be directed to washrooms in Kingston Hall while work is in progress.

Note: There may be discolouration or air in your water when a tap is first opened following the service interruption. This is quite normal and is an aesthetic problem only; it does not present a safety concern. Run your water for several minutes before using it and the problem should quickly remedy itself. It is best to perform this initial flushing at a tap that is not equipped with a mesh strainer in order to avoid a possible fouling of the strainer.
