Fall 2018 Hydrant Flushing – Week One

Aqua Ohio’s Marion Division will conduct water main flushing in the Marion County service area Monday, September 10 through Friday, September 14, 2018 between 8:00 am and midnight.

“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. This fall, we’re accelerating the schedule, to five weeks from eight, which will involve crews flushing until midnight each night.”

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.
