March 9, 2020, 4:30 p.m. update: unidirectional flushing has concluded for the day and will continue tomorrow, March 10, 2020. We have also tentatively scheduled flushing for Wednesday and Thursday nights due to the busy location in town of the next areas to flush. More information will be sent out tomorrow.
Hydra Tech will begin unidirectional flushing around 8:00 a.m. and will start on the first sequence in the list below and will progress in order.
