Traffic & Water Service Advisory - Agricola Street

Water service has been restored to impacted customers on Agricola Street.

Agricola Street will remain closed between West Street and the Cunard Street roundabout until approximately 6:00 PM while crews reinstate the street.

Customers in the area may experience discoloured water following this repair.

Customers who experience discoloured water should run the COLD water at one faucet for about 10 minutes. You should see the water clear. Do not use the hot water faucet since this will draw discoloured water into your hot water heater/tank, which could make the problem worse. If the water fails to clear after 10 minutes, wait for a few hours and again try running only the cold water. To learn more about discoloured water, visit
