Water Main Flushing on Campus

Facilities Planning & Management will be flushing water mains on campus on Wednesday, October 2 starting at 6pm and continuing until the process is complete (usually around midnight).

Flushing operations may lead to discolored water, which is caused by minerals being dislodged from the water main. If discoloration appears, open a cold tap to full flow until the water runs clear. This may take as much as 5-10 minutes.

Note: Please make sure that the water is clear before doing laundry or conducting any other project that may be affected by discolored water.
