Consolidated Public Water Supply District #2 is performing a routine flush of its dead-end lines this week. Click to hear KMZU’s Bob Allen talk with Consolidated Public Water Supply District #2 Manager Dennis Knipmeyer:
Knipmeyer says residents serviced by the district in the western third of Saline County may see a discoloration in their water supply over the next few days. The flush will stir up residue that builds up on low points of the water line and that residue will work its way out of the line and into the water supply. According to Knipmeyer, the water is free of bacteria as no lines have been broken, but he warns the residue from the maintenance may stain light-colored loads of laundry. If the discoloration persists for longer than three or four days, customers are asked to call the district.
