Public works to begin flushing hydrants today

If you see rust in your water over the next couple of weeks, you are not imagining things.  Starting April 25, Wayzata Public Works will be driving around town and letting water out of hydrants and water mains according to a detailed plan.

The purpose of this annual process is to remove any particulate matter that may have built up in the water mains over the year and insure that all fire hydrants on the water system are operating properly.

If discolored water is present, run the cold-water faucet until the water runs clear. Residents are advised to be observant while washing clothes until after the flushing has been completed.

For more information regarding hydrant flushing contact the Wayzata Public Works at 952-404-5360, choose option 2. A map showing the hydrant flushing schedule can be found by clicking here.
