Water Main Flushing- Postponed Until November 5

Water Main Flushing – postponed until November 5

The Sherrill-Kenwood Water District will begin its water main/hydrant-flushing program on Monday, November 5th.  This program is being undertaken to ensure customers continue to receive the highest quality water.

During this time, customers may notice episodes of decreased water pressure or discoloration of their water. Water discoloration results from temporary disturbances of the normal water flow within our piping network. These short-term changes in flow can stir up naturally occurring minerals and sediment that settle within the water mains. The objective of the water main/hydrant flushing program is to remove these accumulated sediments from our pipes by flushing the water out of the fire hydrants. SKWD recommends customers in or near the target flushing areas store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking. If water discoloration occurs, customers should try to refrain from using hot water (for washing laundry, etc.) and run their cold-water faucets until the water appears clear.

Flushing Schedule: (Between Hours of 7:30am – 3:00pm)

November 5 – Route 5, Prospect Street, Rowland Place and the entire North side of the City.

November 6- streets West of Sherrill Road.

November 7- streets East of Sherrill Road.

Any questions please contact SKWD at (315) 363-3754 or Sherrill City Hall at (315) 363-2440.
