[ARCHIVED] Ward 1 Water Line Flushing: 08/31 & 09/01

The Public Works Department will be performing water line flushing in Ward 1 on Monday and Tuesday, 08/31 & 09/01.

Routine water line flushing is necessary to remove the build-up of scale, rust, and silt from the water lines which can cause customers to experience discolored water.

Residents are encouraged to not park across from/within fifteen (15) feet of fire hydrants to ensure the flushing can be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Residents in the area who experience discolored water can alleviate the issue by running a single cold water faucet (preferably an outside faucet) for a few moments, which in most cases clears the water in the service line to the home.

Additionally, we recommend residents not do laundry at the beginning of the day and wait until the water has cleared, as the particles may discolor clothing. Residents who inadvertently use discolored water in their washing machine can reverse the affects by rewashing and using Iron Out, Rover, or other similar products available at grocery and hardware stores.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we thank you for your patience and understanding while we perform the necessary maintenance.
