The Water Department will do everything possible to minimize any disturbance during flushing periods. Please watch for signs that will be posted, notifying customers of flushing areas. It is recommended that customers set aside clean water for drinking and cooking purposes should you experience any discoloration. Be advised, temporary discoloration of the water and a chlorine taste is to be expected during the flushing period. Please check water for clarify before doing any laundry.
If discoloration is detected, we recommend running the cold water closest to the meter (outside faucet or bath tub) for at least 10 minutes or until the water clears. If sediment is in the water, do not run any water for approximately 30 minutes, giving the water time to settle. If an emergency arises, and water is needed, it is not harmful to consume.
We apologize for any inconvenience and we appreciate the cooperation of our Hawkinsville customers in our effort to maintain the highest quality of potable water possible.
