The Burlington Water Utility will be flushing hydrants on Thursdays during the months of April through August, to reduce and remove the accumulation of rust and iron in the City’s water main distribution system. This flushing may cause discolored water in your system. This discolored water is bacteriologically safe and will not harm you. City residents should check their water supply on Thursdays before engaging in any work that could be affected by the City’s flushing of hydrants. Your cooperation and understanding during water main flushing is greatly appreciated! If your water becomes discolored, run a cold water tap at full force until the water clears, usually in a few minutes. If it doesn’t, call the Water Utility at 262-342-1181 for assistance.
