Spring Water Main and Hydrant Flushing April 29 – May 3, 2019

Fire Hydrant Flushing 2019

The City of Whitewater Water Utility will begin its semi-annual water main and hydrant flushing program on Monday, April 29 through Friday, May 3. Flushing of water mains is necessary in order to continue to deliver clean, safe water to our citizens. If we have repairs more than expected throughout the week, we may have to continue flushing into the following week.

Flushing of water mains and hydrants may cause discoloration of the water.Therefore, caution should be used when washing white clothing. Discoloration of the water due to flushing WILL stain white clothing. We notify the public in all local media outlets; therefore, we cannot be responsible for stained clothing. If discoloration is detected, run the cold water faucet until the discoloration clears. While we are still flushing in your area the water may take a while to clear up. You may want to wait until we have left the area and the water settles down before running your water tap. If reduced pressure is experienced after flushing, you may have to clean the aerators on your house faucets.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during water main and hydrant flushing. If you have any questions, please contact the Water Utility at 473-0560.

Rick Lien, Water Superintendent
