The Water Utility Department will be flushing water mains this evening, April 13th, between 7:00 PM and 5:00 AM Wednesday, April 14th. The area will be on Century Avenue from Parmenter Street to HWY Q. We will also be flushing in the Baskerville, Sunrise Court, Waconia Lane and Shorecrest areas.
During the flushing process, water in the mains may become discolored for a short period of time. The discoloration is due to mineral deposits being dislodged during the flushing process. The discolored water does not cause any adverse health effects; however, it may taste different due to the increased minerals. If you notice that your water is discolored, run the cold water tap nearest to your water meter for a short period of time until the water runs clear.
Your patience and understanding are appreciated during this critical main cleaning process. Thank you for your cooperation.
