Indiana American Water to begin flushing system Tuesday


Indiana American Water crews will begin routine flushing of the water distribution system Tuesday. That will run through Oct. 19.

The purpose of the flushing is to ensure customers continue to receive high-quality water service. Flushing also allows the company to test and maintain fire hydrants.

When crews are working, customers may notice reduced pressure or discolored water. If the water is discolored, run the cold water taps only at the lowest level of the house for about 3 to 5 minutes until the water runs clear. If discolored water occurs, refrain from doing laundry during that time.

In keeping with Indiana American Water’s focus on safety for customers and employees, do not approach crews while they work.
