Brown water is expected to return to south Winnipeg this week.
City hall issued a warning late Wednesday afternoon stating that construction work on a feeder main at Pembina Highway and Bison Drive will likely cause discoloured water for many homes and properties throughout a wide swath of south Winnipeg — Waverley Heights, Waverley West and south Fort Garry.
The construction work is set to begin Thursday morning and conclude Sunday.
City hall is reminding residents that, while health officials state drinking discoloured water would not a pose a health risk, it’s not recommended for any purpose that requires clear water — drinking, preparing food and beverages or doing laundry.
