TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Indiana American Water started flushing water mains in Terre Haute on Monday morning, in order to assure high-quality water service for both customers and firefighters.
Water mains will be flushed weekdays (Monday through Friday) from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
The company conducts the annual maintenance program to assure high-quality water service and to ensure fire hydrants are operational.
IAW doesn't expect any interruptions in customers' service; however, they do speculate that it is possible for a drop in water pressure at certain times. They also stated as a precaution, that water discoloration may occur while this program is underway.
Customers should refrain from doing laundry during the time of day the flushing is occurring.
If discoloration occurs, run tap water for a short while until it clears up. Using more than one faucet allows the water to clear more quickly.
As part of the flushing program, IAW will temporarily change the disinfectant used in the water treatment process to support a system-wide flushing of the Terre Haute district. They warn that you may notice a chlorine taste and odor in your drinking water, but should not be alarmed.
Customers who have question regarding hydrant flushing may call IAW Customer Service Center at (800) 492-8373.
