During the week of May 19 to 31, 2019, the Public Works department will be conducting sewer flushing throughout town.
Cleaning and inspecting sewer lines are essential to maintaining a properly functioning system; these activities further a community’s reinvestment into its wastewater infrastructure. Sewer Flushing helps clean and remove residual debris from sanitary mains, by directing high-powered jets of water through the interior of the pipes.
During flushing, you are advised to keep toilet lids closed, especially those located in a basement or on the first floor. Splashing can occur, due to the water and air being forced through the mains by means of high pressure water spraying equipment.
There should not be any smell involved with the process. However, the force of the flushing can clear standing water from drain traps. Should you notice a sewer odor after the flushing has been completed, please run water in all drains, including any floor drains. This should eliminate the smell completely.
Scammers are sneaky and sly. They can target anyone, from youngsters to retirees. They can also target businesses. No one is immune to fraud.

The Government of Canada has introduced legislation to legalize cannabis. There will be new federal, provincial and municipal processes for cannabis production, sale and consumption.
The legalization of cannabis will have many impacts. The Town of Legal is reviewing federal and provincial direction and legislation as it becomes available to help manage the legalization of cannabis in the best interest of our community.
