FLUSHING VALVES

During the summer months, the Water Superintendent flushes hydrants.  This process clears the water mains of mineral build up. Advance notices will be made on the city website, city Facebook page, and postings at City Hall and Post Office. While hydrants are being flushed, you may experience decreased water pressure, air in the lines, and/or rusty-looking water.  To relieve this, simply turn on just the cold water faucet and let water run until it clears.
