Water Company Beginning Spring Flushing

Ohio American Water will conduct water main flushing in the Marion County service area during the week beginning Monday, April 12 and continuing through Friday, April 16 from 8 a.m. until 12:30 a.m.

The company conducts the annual maintenance program to assure high-quality water service and to ensure fire hydrants are operational.

According to Marion Operations Supervisor Don Scott, water main and fire hydrant flushing is an important part of a regular maintenance program for water distribution systems.

No interruptions in water service will occur as a result of the work. Customers may experience a slight drop in water pressure or temporary water discoloration while this program is underway. Customers should refrain from doing laundry during the time of day the flushing program is taking place in or near their neighborhood.

If tap water is discolored, Ohio American Water recommends allowing several cold-water faucets to run for a short time until the water runs clear. Using more than one faucet allows the water to clear faster.

If you have questions about the flushing schedule or any other concerns, please contact an Ohio American Water customer service representative at 1-800-673-5999 for assistance.
