Fall Water Main and Hydrant Flushing

2021 Fall Fire Hydrant Flushing

2021 Fall Fire Hydrant Flushing

Whitewater, Wis. September 9, 2021 - The Water Utility will begin its semi-annual water main and hydrant flushing program on Monday, September 27, through Friday, October 1, 2021. Flushing of water mains is necessary in order to continue to deliver clean, safe water to our citizens. If we have more repairs than expected throughout the week, we may have to continue flushing into the following week.

Flushing of water mains and hydrants can cause some discoloration of water. Caution should be exercised in washing of white clothing. Discoloration of water due to flushing WILL stain white clothing. We notify the public in all local media outlets; therefore, we cannot be responsible for stained clothing. If discoloration is detected, run the cold-water faucet until the discoloration clears. While we are still flushing in your area, the water may take a while to clear up. You may want to wait until we have left the area and the water settles down before running your water tap. If reduced pressure is experienced after flushing, you may have to clean the aerators on your house faucets.

For additional questions or concerns, contact the Water Utility at (262) 473-0560. For other requests, visit  the Request Tracker
