Evansville Water and Light will be flushing water mains starting Monday, September 28th through Wednesday, October 7th. Flushing is done to check hydrants and remove any sediments from the water mains. You may experience some brown water when we flush the mains in your neighborhood. To prevent this, it is best not to run water while we are flushing in your area. If you do experience discolored water, turn on your cold water tap until it runs clear.

Directional flushing compartmentalizes the City’s water system and allows us to better flush each individual sections which will greatly reduce the amounts of settled iron and manganese present in the pipes. These minerals are naturally occurring in the aquifer that we draw from and pose no health risk. Overtime these minerals can settle and oxidizes at the bottom of the water mains. When the water is stirred up from abnormally high flow it can cause a brownish colored water. The reason we are using this method is to mitigate these occurrences of discolored water in the system and hopefully remove the deposits better than what we achieved through previous methods. Water quality is of the utmost importance to the City. We take great pride in the work we do to provide our utility users with clean and safe water.
