Our crews will begin routine flushing of the water distribution system in your area Monday, May 17, 2021 through Friday, July 02, 2021 to provide you with high-quality water service. Flushing in your area will occur between the hours of 8am and 4:30pm.
Flushing also allows us to test and maintain fire hydrants. When crews are working in your area, you may notice reduced pressure or discolored water. If your water is discolored, run the cold water taps only, at the lowest level of the house for about 3 to 5 minutes until the water runs clear. If discolored water occurs, then please also refrain from doing laundry during that time. In keeping with American Water’s focus on safety for both customers and employees, please do not approach our crews while they work.
