I stopped by City Hall today to pick up the police blotter, and a big piece of paper with the word NOTICE was laying out on a table in the entryway…
So from me to you, it’s that time of year again, time to flush the water mains to let all the rust out of the system. That means you’ll see hydrants shooting water into streets, your drinking water will be orange from rust and you need to be careful when washing those white clothes. Here is the original press release straight from the city:
The Wayzata Utility Department will be flushing water mains and fire hydrants from April 21st through May 2nd. The purpose of this process is to remove any particulate matter that may have built up in the water mains over the year and also to insure that all fire hydrants on the water system are operating properly. As this flushing process may cause your water to become discolored at times, residents are advised to be observant while washing clothes until after the flushing has been completed. If discolored water is present, run the cold water faucets until the water clears.
