Hydrant Flushing Began Tuesday, April 19th

Crews will start on the north end of town and work their way south. The flushing can cause turbulence in the water mains and discoloration may result.  The water is of good quality, but if discoloration occurs, run the water at an outside faucet until it is clean, usually 10-15 minutes.

What Causes the Rusty Color in my Water?
Flushing fire hydrants and water main repairs can disturb sediments in water mains resulting in red or brown colored water.  If this is the case, turn on the cold water from an outside faucet for a few minutes to flush any sediment out of your pipes.  While red or discolored water is not a health concern, it can stain laundry.
