Annual Flushing Spring flushing of the fire hydrants and watermains will take place beginning the week of April 22, 2019 and will run for several weeks, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Flushing of the fire hydrants helps to ensure their reliability as well as dislodge & remove particle build-up from the watermain. Staff is currently working in the Tower Park neighborhood and will work outward from there.
During this process:
The water is SAFE to drink.
If water is temporarily discolored, do not use for washing - especially white clothes. If you notice discoloration of your laundry after washing DO NOT put them in the dryer. After clearing your line, re-wash your laundry, this will usually remove any discoloration.
To help clear discolored water, open all COLD water taps for 15-30 minutes or until the water runs clear.
