The flushing process in an important part of the City’s annual maintenance program to maintain high quality potable water and provide continued flow capacities within our distribution system.
The flushing of water mains will produce temporary water discoloration and pressure fluctuations. It is important to understand the safety of the water is NOT compromised in any way.
We would advise scheduling washing clothes and cleaning projects at other times. It is suggested that Restaurants, Laundromats, etc. keep their use to a minimum until the water clears.
The water system will be riled and cloudy, but this condition will clear upon completion of the work.
GENERAL FLUSHING AGENDA
Please be prepared to experience water discoloration at ANY TIME 5/16 - 5/26
The water will be riled and cloudy during this process and pressure fluctuations may also occur.
