Projects Around Creswell in May 2016

Public Works Project - Annual Flushing of Water Lines

Starting Monday, May 23rd through Wednesday, May 25th, 2016, your Creswell Public Works Crew is completing their annual water line flushing project.  Flushing your water lines keeps your pipes clean and water running smoothly.  This may mean a few things for you: 

  • * It will probably be a bit of an inconvenience, as, while they are flushing lines near you, the water coming out of your tap or toilet could be orange to brownish in color.  Please realize the water is perfectly safe.  The discoloration is caused by sediment being stirred up in the lines while the flushing is taking place. 
  • *  It also may mean that once they are done in your area, you will probably want to run your water for several minutes until it runs clear.  That would be a great time to grab a bucket or two and fill them up to water your flowers or flush a toilet!  There are many uses for this water, as again, it is perfectly safe, just a little off in color. 

We are very sorry for any inconvenience you may experience during this time and thank you so much for your patience with us while we strive to offer you the best water possible! 

Thank you again!
