Water Main Flushing on July 26

Written on July 22, 2016

The FP&M Physical Plant Plumbing Shop will be flushing water mains on Tuesday, July 26. Water main flushing will begin at 6:00pm and end at about 11:00pm.

Flushing operations may lead to discolored water, which is caused by minerals being dislodged from the water main. Please make sure water is clear before doing any laundry, or using the water for any other projects that could be affected by discolored water. If discoloration occurs, open a cold tap to full flow until the water runs clear. In some situations this may take 5 to 10 minutes.
