Spring System Flushing Program begins tonight!
Water Division crews will be opening and running hydrants during the overnight hours starting in West Mansfield. Flushing will continue town-wide over the next 4-6 weeks (weather permitting) between 12 Midnight to 6AM.
Below is a list of street areas scheduled to be flushed Tuesday, March 21, 2017:
Water customers may or may not experience water discoloration as a result of this activity. Should this occur, run water until color appears clear. As a precaution to protect laundry, check water color in washers to make sure it’s clear before adding fabrics.
*Water Conservation Tip: Put a layer of mulch around trees and plants. Mulch will slow evaporation of moisture while discouraging weed growth. Adding 2 - 4 inches of organic material such as compost or bark mulch will increase the ability of the soil to retain moisture. Press the mulch down around the dripline of each plant to form a slight depression which will prevent or minimize water runoff.
Updated lists of street areas scheduled for flushing will be posted as the information becomes available on the Town of Mansfield website, Facebook and Twitter.
