City of Chewelah flushing water lines April 5-9

(PRESS RELEASE/City of Chewelah)

The City Public Works Department will be flushing water lines city wide (not including Airport/Golf Course) Monday, April 5 through Friday, April 9 beginning at 6:30 a.m. and continuing throughout each day.

Flushing could affect the water city wide.  You may have water during this time, but it may be cloudy and/or rusty colored because of the sediment that has accumulated in the bottom of the lines during the past months.  If you have low pressure or no water, please be patient as flushing may take 15 minutes to ½ hour in your area.

If you encounter dirty water during this time, please avoid the use of ice-makers, dishwashers, and washing machines.  Call 935-8311 or 935-8313 with questions or concerns.  Thank you.
