Just as we wash our dishes after use, so does the our water utility need to be routinely rinsed out. This maintenance process contributes to the long term health of our water utility, and should present minimal inconvenience for our residents.
Over the course of the subsequent 6 weeks, all of the fire hydrants and water mains in town will be flushed for a period of time. There may be a temporary decrease of water pressure while a main or hydrant is being flushed in a neighborhood. There may also be a slight discoloration to tap water during or following this process. Please do not wash laundry or dishes while the water is discolored.
Please call the Water Utility if you have any questions or concerns, thank you.
