Hydrant Flushing April 26 – May 7

hydrant flushing sector 1 0426-0507

MAWSA is flushing hydrants from April 26 to May 7. We anticipate being done with the Northwest Section of town (North of High and West of Main) by April 28.

MAWSA flushes hydrants as part of regular maintenance of the system and water quality.
During flushing you may experience low or no water pressure, or temporary water discoloration.

Water discoloration does not affect the water quality. If you experience discolored water, run cold water until it is clear. Be sure to rinse faucet screens as well. Before running clothing or dishwashers, be sure the water is clear before using them. If laundry becomes stained due to discolored water, rewash immediately to minimize staining.

Along the same lines, it is recommended that water heaters are flushed per manufacturer’s instructions on a regular basis.
As a reminder, please drive safely around our crews and give added space for wet road conditions.
