Hydrant flushing will take place on July 25, 2022 for customers within the Cedar Hollow Development. It is anticipated that flushing will occur between 9AM and 3PM.
Flushing is part of ongoing system maintenance. While the flushing of the system is in progress, numerous valves will be exercised and operated, and hydrants flowed to achieve the final objective of a cleaner, more efficient water distribution system. This also enables us to check each fire hydrant to ensure it is operating correctly and is available in a time of emergency.
The consumer should be aware that while this flushing program is in progress, and shortly thereafter, it may create murky and or rusty looking water conditions. Please DO NOT BE ALARMED, it is not harmful to you, and should clear up after you run the water for a few minutes or so.
Please avoid washing clothes during the period of time that flushing is taking place in your section of town. If you must do laundry, we recommend that you do not use chlorine/bleach.
We realize our flushing program will cause some inconvenience for those who live in the area of flushing. This will only be temporary and will result in better quality drinking water and a more efficient distribution system.
We are working closely with your local officials and police departments to keep traffic problems to a minimum and to observe all safety precautions.
Some flooding of streets may occur temporarily during the week; please be mindful of this and our crews working in and around the streets during this process.
If a problem should occur during the program, please report it by calling 717-665-2737.
Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we work to maintain our water system.
