2020 HYDRANT FLUSHING NOTICE

April 27, 2020 at 11:38 am

Fire Hydrant FlushingDuring the next several weeks, we will be flushing our water mains and fire hydrants.  This “housecleaning” is necessary to insure that the water delivered to you is clear and sparkling and that fire hydrants operate properly in the event of a fire.

Flushing is scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. on the following evenings:  May 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th.  Nightly flushing is normally completed by 6 a.m. the following morning.  In addition, on May 21st and 22nd there will be daytime flushing in the Independence and Mt. Olive high pressure areas.

When we are flushing in your area you may draw some rusty looking water for a short time.  Just let it run for a while and it will clear up.  Please check your water before washing clothes (especially white clothing).  The best times to wash clothes during the flushing period is anytime on Saturday and Sunday before 10 p.m.
