HYDRANT FLUSHING NOTICE

We will be flushing the water mains in your neighborhood during the next several weeks. The purpose of this work is to remove mineral buildup and sediment from the water mains.

It is possible that some customers may experience dirty water issues or low water pressure while this work is being done. There may be periods of interruption in your water service to your home or business.

Discolored water or “rusty” water typically lasts for only a brief period of time until it is flushed out of the fire hydrants. It is essential to our efforts to provide our customers with safe, high quality water. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation. 

Please contact this office at 435-7741 should you have any questions.
