City will begin flushing water lines June 5

The City water distribution system will begin flushing water lines on Monday, June 5, 2017. This flushing will have a duration of three to four weeks.

Residents may notice some water discoloration and/or cloudiness. There may also be a chlorine taste and odor during this time and water pressures could be low, but all of these effects are normal and temporary.

Flushing water lines is a standard, important operational procedure for any water system. The purpose of flushing is to remove sediments and stale water and to help maintain chlorine residuals throughout the entire distribution system.

Residents are asked to keep in mind this is annual process is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to provide safe drinking water to all of our customers, and we thank you for your cooperation at this time.

Any questions or issues may be directed to Derek Clevenger, Director of Utilities at 620.421.7020 or dclevenger@parsonsks.com
