We will be flushing water mains throughout our system Monday through Friday, May 16 – May 20, which may result in some rusty or off-colored water for a short period of time. We suggest you avoid washing your clothes while the flushing activity is underway, but be assured that water will remain safe to drink system-wide throughout this process.
