FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The first week of a four-week water main flushing program by the Department of Public Works begins Sunday, September 20, 2015 through Friday, September 25, 2015, between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Water will be temporarily disturbed due to the flushing. During this operation, residents will be unable to use their water and should store a sufficient amount before that time. Avoid laundering during this period.
After flushing is complete, you may encounter discolored or dirty water. This condition is disturbing but will dissipate if you turn on your cold water through all interior faucets for awhile and flush out the discolored water.
The flushing schedule is as follows:
