North Beach Water Annual System Flushing Schedule

Published on November 21, 2017 3:32PM

North Beach Water Annual System Flushing Schedule North Beach Water District will be conducting its annual flushing program over the next several weeks. Water main flushing is an important preventative maintenance procedure to remove sediment buildup and stagnate water in the lines. Field Crews will begin flushing on December 4, 2017. In an effort to reduce the amount of low pressure or cloudy water events, we will be flushing at night. We will be using hydrant flushing road side signs to inform you of when we will be flushing in your neighborhood. Flushing will result in temporary lowered pressure and slight discoloration of the water. Even if we are not flushing near your neighborhood you may experience lower pressure due to the increased velocities required to scour and lift sediments within the pipe. To minimize stained laundry, refrain from washing laundry after 8:00 pm or before 6:00 am during the flushing program. If you find you have discolored water, run the cold water for a few minutes to clear the lines. If the cloudy water persists please contact me for assistance. In addition, the District will be adding chlorine to the distribution system during the flushing program. The chlorine is being added to help remove biofilm buildup in the water mains and disinfection during the flushing event. The chlorine residuals may be detectable until December 31, 2017. We will be flushing Sunday through Thursday between the hours of 8:00PM to 6:00AM. We expect the flushing program to last through December 15, 2017.
