Water Main Flushing Set to Begin
Water Main Flushing Set to Begin
martes, 1 de octubre de 2019
NEWPORT, R.I. (Tuesday, October 1, 2019) --
As part of the Newport Water Division’s ongoing maintenance of the water distribution system, a water main flushing program in designated areas will begin during evening hours beginning Sunday, October 6, 2019 and ending October 24, 2019.
The flushing of the water mains using fire hydrants will begin at 8:00 p.m. and continue until 4:00 a.m. Signs will be posted in each area before flushing begins.
Please be aware that during the flushing process, it is common to have discolored water with low water pressure. Flushing in one area may create discolored water in other areas. If you encounter discolored water following the hydrant flushing, run the cold water taps throughout your home (bathroom sinks and tubs, kitchen faucets, etc.) for 5 to 10 minutes or until water clears. This allows discolored water to work its way out of your interior household plumbing. It is recommended that use of water be minimized during the hours of flushing. Please call 845-5600 for additional information.
The proposed flushing schedule is subject to change due to weather conditions.
