Verney water tower undergoing maintenance this month

Residents and businesses may experience fluctuations in water pressure

Guelph, Ont., November 9, 2017– The Verney water tower will be out of service for about three weeks beginning November 14 while City staff conduct planned maintenance of the tower.

Maintenance work includes draining the tower and inspecting the inside and outside in preparation for full maintenance and upgrades planned for 2018.

During the work, residents and businesses in the area may experience temporary water pressure fluctuations. Water service interruptions are not expected.

Properties with built-in fire protection systems connected to the water supply are encouraged to notify their alarm company as pressure fluctuations may trigger the system’s alarm.
