The Kutztown Water Department will begin flushing Borough-owned fire hydrants on June 6, 2016. This task is expected to take approximately ten days. Crews will be flushing hydrants from approximately 7:00 a.m. through 3:30 p.m.
This is an American Water Works Association recommended practice to help insure water quality, as well as hydrant operation and performance. However, due to the exercise, some customers may experience some cloudy drinking water. Allowing a faucet to flow freely for approximately one minute should alleviate the condition.
Please feel free to contact our office at 484-646-9521, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. if you should have any questions concerning your water.
