It's that time of year when United Water is preparing to start its spring flushing program.

Beginning Monday, crews will be flushing water out of blow-off valves located in the street.

Flushing clears the lines of any iron and manganese buildup.

Customers may notice a drop in water pressure or have discolored water.

While the water is perfectly safe, United Water recommends that customers wait until the water clears before drinking, washing clothes or using dishwashers.
