WATER QUALITY ADVISORY-FLUSHING

(Increased Turbidity)

District System Flushing

Staff will be performing water main flushing throughout the District from October 15 to November 04, between the hours of 7:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Sunday.

System flushing is required to ensure good water quality and removes any sediment deposits that have accumulated in the distribution pipes. Watch for the OFID signs when flushing is being performed in your area.

Customers are advised that during this period, they will experience lower water pressure and temporary discoloration. To avoid any inconvenience, please check your water clarity prior to use. If you experience discoloration, run your cold taps until the water clears.

Due to the above concerns and as a precautionary measure, water users are advised to refrain from using the water until it runs clear. Bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth and food preparation during the stated period. Unchlorinated water is available free of charge at Pumphouse No. 4, located at Oliver Ranch Road and Commercial Dr. Mon. to Fri. from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.
