What should I do when I get notification that the District is 'flushing' the water lines.

PVWSD periodically flushes the water lines that deliver water to your home and business.  This cleans out the debris and buildup that occurs in the lines over time.

  • When you receive notification, please do not use any water during the period of flushing (this usually occurs in the wee hours of the morning).
  • After the lines have been flushed and prior to using water in your home - turn on an outside faucet and let the water run for a few minutes until the water is clear.
  • After running the outside faucet, turn on the cold water inside and let that run for a few minutes until the water is clear.  This will help prevent any debris from entering your hot water system.
  • It is also recommended that you do not wash laundry the day after flushing occurred.
