Fall Hydrant Flushing starts October 1, 2018!

MATR will begin the routine Fall Fire Hydrant Flushing starting October 1st and running thru December 7th.  You may notice MATR personnel working at the fire hydrants and water running down the streets.  Customers should be aware of the potential for discolored water. This is a temporary situation resulting from flushing sediment out of the pipes. The water may also be cloudy or appear white due to air entrapped in the water. All water system customers are cautioned to check the water before use. Please see the attached list for the scheduled days of your street.  Due to the nature of the work it is not possible to predetermine how long flushing a given area will take.
