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.
