Hydrant flushing will be conducted on the North-East side of town (from North of Route 72 to Railroad Avenue between Hadsall Street and Prairie Street) on Monday, October 21st, from 9:30 am until 2:30 pm. Flushing will continue on Tuesday if needed.
Hydrant flushing removes sediment and iron deposits within the system that cause water discoloration. Adjacent neighborhoods may experience discolored water due to sediment that may be stirred up in the system. If this occurs, please run your cold water until it is clear.
Public Works conducts hydrant flushing on an annual basis to maintain water quality.
