•Noank Water Company will conduct its annual hydrant-flushing program from June 30 through the July 3, 2014 daily between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. (Weather permitting)
•During this time customers may experience low pressure (due to flushing) and water discoloration (stirred up dust).
Because of the possibility of discolored water, Noank Water Company advises customers to store tap water in the refrigerator for drinking and cooking until the water clears up.
•NWC advises customers should schedule clothes washing before 8AM and after 6PM. Before doing any wash, check the water for discoloration and run the water long enough to allow sufficient time for the water to clear (10-15 minutes). This will help avoid the possibility of clothes discoloration.
Note: The water is safe to drink. The Flushing Schedule dates may be adjusted slightly for severe weather or emergencies.
