GLP Hydrant Flushing - June 11-142019 – HYDRANT FLUSHING
June 11th Through June 14th
The GLP Water Department will begin its water main flushing and testing program Tuesday, June 11th. The program is scheduled to be completed on June 14th. All GLP Water customers should expect intermittent intervals of water discoloration during the water main flushing process. At various times during the cleaning, water will be discolored due to the disturbance of naturally occurring minerals that have settled in the water mains. The water is safe to drink. However, because of discoloration, the Water Department advises customers to store tap water in the refrigerator for drinking and cooking until the water clears up. Residents should also check the condition of the water prior to washing clothes and if it is discolored, delay doing laundry until the water is clear. Please note that the dates may vary slightly due to severe weather of other emergencies that may affect scheduling.
