UPDATE: Discolored Water Clearing For East Side Customers

We continue to flush hydrants in the East Side 2nd high service area after repairs on a 48 inch main required a change in flow patterns and caused discolored water yesterday for customers. At this point, the discolored water has been flushed from most of the system. The water in mains in the streets is essentially clear, and customer homes should be running clear too. Should customers notice there is still discolored water in their home, they should allow their water to run for several minutes to clear the plumbing throughout their property.

Repairs to Main May Affect Some East Side Customers; Water is Safe

As we work to make scheduled repairs to a 48 inch transmission main on Fairmount Boulevard, we will be serving some of our 2nd high service area customers from a different main. This change in flow pattern may cause some discoloration in your water, but rest assured, your water is safe to drink and use as normal.
