Every spring, City crews flush fire hydrants to help maintain water quality. Hydrant flushing began this week north of County Road F and will start the week of May 8 south of County Road F. The schedule may vary a few days either way. Please keep cars away from hydrants in these areas between the hours of 8 am and 3 pm. Cloudy or discolored water may be present while hydrant flushing is taking place. There is no health risk with this water and the cloudiness should clear up by letting your taps run. During this time be cautious when doing your laundry, especially whites.
