The Water Utility Department will begin system flushing in the downtown area between 7:00 PM Sunday, April 11th and 5:00 AM Monday, April 12th. The area is south of University Avenue, from Highway 12/14 to Maple Street.
During the flushing process, water in the mains may become discolored for a short period of time. The discoloration is due to mineral deposits being dislodged during the flushing process. The discolored water does not cause any adverse health effects; however, it may taste different due to the increased minerals. If you notice that your water is discolored, run the cold water tap nearest to your water meter for a short period of time until the water runs clear.
Your patience and understanding are appreciated during this critical main cleaning process. Thank you for your cooperation.
