  Flushing of fire hydrants began on Monday, May 1 and will continue for approximately two weeks between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and Midnight (weekdays), weather permitting.  Discoloration of the water and low pressure may occur in the area of flushing; however, this condition is temporary and the water remains safe to use.  It is suggested that residents be alerted to such discoloration of the water when laundering is done between these hours.
