Water Main Flushing October 11-27

The City of Pine Island would like to inform the residents
that it is again time for the water main flushing.
This is part of the Water Works overall water main
maintenance program, which helps us meet the commitment
of providing you the best drinking water possible.
You may experience a temporary decrease in water pressure
and temporary occurrences of discolored water when
the hydrants are being flushed in your area. If you notice
any discoloration, please refrain from using the water for
a short time, especially your hot water. Check to make
sure the water is clear before beginning any laundry.
We appreciate your patience and your comments. If you
would like additional information about this program, or
any other water-related issue, please contact public works.
