Water Flushing Zone 6
On Monday June 28, 2021, American Water will be continuing their 2021 Annual Water Main Flushing Program. The purpose of the program is to provide the best quality water available to you the customer by removing any buildup of sediment that may have occurred in the water lines. Flushing may result in the temporary reduction of water pressure and the presence of sediment in your water which can cause discoloration. These conditions are not harmful and should be of very short duration. During the hours between 8:00am and 4:00pm please limit your use of water to help prevent discolored water reaching your service lines to your residence. Should you notice an increase in discolored water at your residence please flush all cold-water faucets inside for fifteen minutes. If you have any water filters installed in your building, please 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, please contact the Water Treatment Plant at (443) 591-0909. This number is monitored 24/7 365 days a year should you have any additional questions or concerns.
