2018 Spring Hydrant Flushing – Week 8

Aqua Ohio’s Marion Division will conduct water main flushing in the Marion County service area Monday, May 28 through Thursday, May 31 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

“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.

Week 8 (of 8) Flushing Schedule:

  • Monday, May 28: No flushing in observance of Memorial Day
  • Tuesday, May 29: Village of Caledonia, Linn-Hipsher Road, Martel Road, Village of Martel, State Route 746, north Whetstone River Road.
