Water System Getting a Flush-Out

For the next eight weeks, crews will be flushing the city’s water distribution system from fire hydrants to scour the mains and remove buildup. The annual maintenance, which keeps drinking water fresh, will typically occur overnight, Monday through Thursday. “Water customers may experience cloudy water coming from the faucets in their homes,” explained a Public Works representative in a prepared statement. “This is normal following system flushing, and customers are advised to run the water for a few minutes until it runs clear.” Select fire hydrants will also be flow-tested.
