Crews working on flushing fire hydrants


Decatur - The Water Services Division will be flushing fire hydrants to remove harmless materials that collect in the water mains beginning on May 20, 2013 until completed. Crews will work between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

During the hours of flushing residents connected to the City water system may experience discolored water and lower than normal water pressure. Residents should wait until the water clears up before drinking or washing clothes and dishes, even though the water is perfectly safe to drink.

The general area affected is the Lakeridge Neighborhood that is located east of Lake Decatur, north of US Route 36, west of 44th Street and south of East Cantrell Street. Some streets located in this neighborhood are East Cleveland Ave., East Lincoln Ave., Turner Ct, Lake Ridge Ave., East Corman Street, and South 37th Street.

For further information please call Water Services at 875--5705.
