NL to flush hydrants for next three weeks
NORTH LIBERTY – The North Liberty water department will be flushing hydrants throughout town beginning on Monday, April 27 and for the following three weeks, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. People should avoid doing laundry during those hours. Iron deposits flushed through the system are safe but may stain clothing, so refrain from doing laundry until your taps run clear if you notice discolored water.
Hydrant flushing removes any sediment in the water system and ensures that hydrants are operating correctly. Again, if you notice air in your water fixtures or any rusty-colored water, please run your tap until the water is clear. This water is safe to drink, but you should wait to consume or use it until water from your cold tap is not discolored. For more information, please contact City Hall at 626-5700.
