How will the flushing process impact me?

The flushing process can disturb deposits and sediments in the pipelines. This can cause temporary water discoloration.

The discolored water is safe for drinking and bathing.

To clear discolored water, run cold water, preferably through an outside spigot, until the water runs clear.
