Hydrant flushing to begin

The City of Elkins Water Distribution department will begin its annual hydrant flushing project at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 28. During the course of this project, customers throughout the city may experience low water pressure and cloudy water at various times.

To clear cloudy water, simply allow it to run until it is clear; if it doesn’t clear up, wait for about an hour and try it again. There are no boil water notices anticipated at this time. The water treatment plant (304-636-2250) and the water distribution department (304-636-6566) have a product that is available to customers, free of charge, to help treat laundry stained by water.
