Chenowith Water PUD will be flushing hydrants beginning Sept. 26 and continuing for the next few weeks.
This process helps keep water lines free of sediments and mineral deposits. It is also important to flush hydrants to verify proper operation and record fire flows.
The PUD asks people to avoid driving or walking through water coming from the hydrants.
Utility users may see discolored water and fine sediment as the hydrants are flushed. The district recommends letting outside faucets run until water is clear.
