We attempt to schedule flushing in a manner that minimizes customer disruptions. Some discoloration/sediment may be noticed as hydrants are flushed in your neighborhood. If you experience discolored water, run your cold tap until it clears. During periods of discoloration, postpone washing clothes and limit your use of hot water until the cold water clears.
