EATON — The City of Eaton Public Works Division will be flushing fire hydrants beginning Monday, May 6, and continuing through Friday, May 10.
Consumers are advised not to wash clothes during this time period due to the possibility that the water may be discolored. The water will remain safe for consumption.
Flushing is done periodically to rid the system of unwanted iron and manganese accumulations to ensure that water quality is maintained.
This process also allows city staff to check the operation of each fire hydrant and make any needed repairs.
Flushing a home’s hot water heater at this time is recommended to ensure good water quality in the home.
Any questions concerning system flushing or any water quality issues should be directed to the Eaton Public Works Division at 937-456-7157.
