2016 Fall Hydrant Flushing – Week 9 Schedule

Aqua Ohio’s Marion Division will conduct water main flushing in the Marion County service area Monday, November 7 through Friday, November 11, 2016 between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm.

“Flushing is an important part of our system’s regular maintenance program. It ensures hydrants and valves are working properly and helps prevent sediment buildup,” said Don Scott, Operations Supervisor for the Marion Division.  “Aqua Ohio consistently meets or exceeds all drinking water standards and maintaining the distribution system helps preserve that quality and reliability.”

Scott said that no interruptions in water service will occur as a result of the flushing but customers may notice a drop in water pressure or temporary water discoloration. If possible, customers should refrain from doing laundry to avoid possible staining while the flushing is taking place near their home. If tap water is discolored, allow it to run until clear.  Running several cold-water faucets at the same time will help the water clear faster.

  • Monday, November 7, 2016:  State Route 309 East from Parkview to Pole Lane Road, Linda Mel Drive, Carolyn Drive, Wheeler Drive, New Park Drive, Sandra Drive, Terrie Lane,  Zwayer Drive, Kibbey Drive, Bealer Drive, Twin Lakes Drive.
