The Water Utility Department will be flushing water mains this evening, April 14th, between 7:00 PM and 5:00 AM Thursday, April 15th. The area will continue on Century Avenue East of HWY 12 to the City limit. We also will be flushing in the Orchid Heights, Shorecrest, Harbor Village, Woodcreek and Bishops Bay neighborhoods.
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.
