Hydrant Flushing

Beginning the week of June 17th, the Water Department will begin flushing the fire hydrants around town. This may cause some discoloration in the water. This is just from water stirring up in the system that is not normally done. If you let your faucets run for a little bit of time before using the water for consumption then it should clear up to what you are normally used to. Thank you for your patience.
