Aqua Ohio’s Marion Division has main flushing scheduled this week. Company officials say flushing is an important part of the regular maintenance program. Operations Supervisor Don Scott says it ensures hydrants and valves are working properly and prevents sediment buildup.
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.
