Although flushing may cause localized discolored water and reduced service pressure conditions in and around the immediate area of flushing, appropriate measures will be taken to ensure that proper levels of treatment and disinfection are maintained in the system at all times. If customers experience discolored water, they should let the water run for a short period to clear it prior to use. If discolored water or low-pressure conditions persist, please contact the Water Department at 499-9339.
Flushing is an important operating procedure that contributes significantly to the maintenance of the water quality in the water distribution system. The department regrets any inconvenience during this time.
