Water system maintenance to begin soon
Due to the extremely wet conditions, hydrant flushing has been delayed. City crews will begin flushing more than 1,200 city fire hydrants beginning mid-May, weather permitting.
The flushing process helps clear mineral deposits from the water mains and ensures that each hydrant is in peak operating condition in case of emergency. Occasionally this causes discolored water in homes and businesses. If this happens, residents are encouraged to run the water in all taps in their home until the water is clear again. Avoid doing laundry until the water runs clear for several minutes.
