Water Company Continues Hydrant Flushing

Ohio American Water will conduct water main flushing in the Marion County service area from Monday, April 26, through Friday, April 30 from 8:00am to 12:30am each day.

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.  He says Ohio American Water consistently meets or exceeds all drinking water standards.

Scott says 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 this allows the water to clear faster.

Customers who have questions regarding hydrant flushing may call our Customer Service Center at 800-673-5999.
