Public Works crews will begin flushing water mains in the Winslow and Fletcher Bay areas Monday, March 9. This is annual work that’s done to improve water quality by removing naturally occurring sediments from the lines.
Signs will be posted in neighborhoods prior to flushing. If customers experience low water pressure or discolored water during flushing operations, they are advised to avoid running water or doing laundry for one hour. After one hour has passed, customers should run cold water for approximately five minutes until it’s clear. The City anticipates the annual flushing process to be completed within approximately two months.
