Testing Fire Hydrants and Flushing Water Lines in Your Area

October 22nd through October 25th

Beginning 8 a.m.


Dear Customer:


Beginning Monday, October 22nd, we will be testing fire hydrants for the Fire Department in the Rimrock service area. The area will include your service address.  We will conclude hydrant testing on Tuesday, October 23rd.  We will do a system wide flush on Wednesday, October 24th and Thursday, October 25th to remove sediment from the water lines.   


There will be a high probability of brown water in your area during this period. Please do not do laundry during this time. We will not be responsible for damaged clothing, linens, etc. Also, you should avoid using hot water during this time to keep any brown water from filling up in your hot water tank.


Each evening after 5 p.m., check the color of your water in a white bowl or cup before using any hot water.  We are sorry for this inconvenience and hope to have this done as quickly as possible.
