The City of Bainbridge Island utility crews will begin flushing of City water mains in the Winslow and Fletcher Bay areas on Monday, March 15. This is annual work that is done to improve water quality by removing naturally-occurring sediments from the lines.
Signs will be posted in neighborhoods prior to flushing.
If you experience low water pressure or discolored water during the work, avoid running water or doing laundry for one hour. After one hour has passed, you should run cold water for approximately five minutes until it's clear.
The City anticipates the annual flushing process to be completed within two months.
