Water main flush may cause temporary discoloration/low water pressure
The City of Lawrence Utilities will be flushing water mains Monday, September 15, 2014 through Wednesday, November 5, 2014. All flushing will be performed during normal business hours in order to enhance employee safety and minimize operational disruptions. As a result of this activity, some customers may experience a temporary discoloration of their water and/or a low water pressure condition. Color can range from a light yellow to an orange-red. If this occurs, the customer should run a medium stream of cold water until the water clears. If a customer is experiencing this problem, the customer should not run hot water or wash clothes until the water clears up. The City does not reimburse customers for water used to flush their service lines due to iron discoloration. Main flushing is required in order to properly maintain the water distribution system and ensure water quality.
