Water service should not be affected during the actual flushing process. During the flushing process, slightly discolored water may be observed at the tap. Should you encounter any discolored water at your residence, avoid using hot water and avoid washing clothes. Run your faucets, for a few minutes, until water runs clear. If you experience no water pressure, or if water does not clear, please contact our water customer service representatives for assistance at 955-4333.
Flushing of water mains is a vital part of a sound preventative maintenance program. The flushing of a water main prevents the buildup of sediments and other material that could cause taste, odor, and/or discoloration. Flushing actually conserves water by using both unidirectional flow and calculated velocities to achieve maximum efficiencies. The Water Divisions Transmission and Distribution Section appreciate your patience and support.
