Water Main Flushing - Deer Haven

by Daniel Purcell 10/23/2017
There will be water main flushing ongoing in the Deer Haven area for the new plats. This could affect the Polk City area. During the main flushing process it is recommended that you check for discolored water before you start any process that discolored water could negatively affect; such as laundry, showering, etc. Low water pressure is a potential outcome of water main flushing and is only temporary. If you experience low water pressure during the flushing process wait until the crews have finished the flushing process and check your water pressure. Thank you for your understanding during this process.
