Hydrant flushing will take place from 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. weekdays through Friday, October 12.

Residents may experience fluctuations in water pressure or discoloration during the flushing operations.  The condition is temporary and does not pose a health hazard.

Anyone noticing discolored water should run the cold tap until it clears up.  During any periods of discoloration, residents should put off washing clothes and limit the use of hot water until the cold water clears.
