Water main flushing underway on post

American Water implemented its 2018 Annual Water Main Flushing Program on Monday.

The purpose of the program is to provide the best quality water available to customers by removing any buildup of sediment that may have occurred in the water lines.

Flushing may result in some temporary discoloration and the presence of sediment in your water. These conditions are not harmful and should be of very short duration.

Between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., limit your use of water to help prevent discolored water reaching service lines to your residence.

Should you notice an increase in discolored water at your residence, flush all cold water faucets inside for 15 minutes.

If you have any water filters installed in your building, check them as they may become dirty or clogged. We advise customers to have replacement filters on hand.

If the water does not clear up, call the Water Treatment Plant at 443-591-0909. This number is monitored 24/7 365 days a year to address questions or concerns.
