Water company to flush city mains


Indiana American Water Co. plans to flush water mains from April 16 to May 11 in the Seymour service area.

The work will be conducted from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

The company conducts the annual maintenance program to assure high-quality water service and to ensure fire hydrants are operational, according to Seymour Superintendent Wynn Wright.

“Water main and fire hydrant flushing is an important part of a regular maintenance program for water distribution systems,” he said.

No interruptions in water service are anticipated as a result of the work. Customers may experience a slight drop in water pressure or temporary water discoloration while this program is underway. Customers should refrain from doing laundry during the time of day the flushing program is taking place in or near their neighborhood.

If tap water is discolored, the company recommends allowing several cold-water faucets to run for a short time until the water runs clear. Using more than one faucet allows the water to clear more quickly.

The water main flushing will be performed by Indiana American Water crews, who will be working out of trucks identified with the company logo. All employees will also have photo identification badges.
