Water Main Flushing
June 12, 2018
City workers are in the process of flushing water mains within the City. The program is done annually as part of a scheduled preventative maintenance program to help maintain good water quality and to improve the water flow in your neighborhood.
While flushing is taking place you may find the water slightly cloudy or water pressure in your home may decrease temporarily. These conditions are normal during watermain flushing and are only temporary. If you notice any of these changes we recommend you flush your waterlines by running your outside water tap until it runs clear (usually 5-10 minutes) and the water has no noticeable taste or odor.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have any questions, or if you experience any persistent water quality problems as a result of this maintenance program, please do not hesitate to contact City Hall at 250-423-6817.
