Print E-mail

Weeks of April 21 & 30 throughout the Community

The Town will be flushing hydrants throughout the community the weeks of April 21 - 30 between the hours of 7:00a - 3:00p. Hydrant flushing helps keeps water lines free of deposit buildup and to check the mechanical operation of fire hydrants. Bi-annual flushing is necessary to provide better water quality and fire protection. Daytime flushing allows crews to perform minor repairs.

Customers may experience periods of low water pressure and/or discoloration of their water during flushing. If you experience discolored water, run your cold-water tap until it clears. During periods of discoloration, postpone washing clothes and limit your use of hot water until the cold water clears.

Flushing will result in water on the roadways. Road travelers are asked to take extra care during this time.
