Depending on field conditions, this schedule may be adjusted to reflect those conditions. Hydrant Flushing may temporarily introduce discolored water into your residence during the work period. Please refrain from water related activities such as laundry and food preparation during this period of time. If you are experiencing discolored water, please run the Cold water only in a downstairs bathtub or outside faucet until clear, after the daily flushing is complete for the day.
