Cross-Connection Prevention Program
Our utility is proud of the quality of service and product we provide our customers and work hard to insure that the water we bring to your home or business is the safest, purest available. That is why we are constantly on the alert for any situation that would degrade that purity.
Our cross-connection prevention program is one way that our staff insures the water you and your family drink is always the best. We believe every water customer should know about cross connections. Even your lawn sprinkler system can be a source for contamination. To review our Cross Connection Policy
or Please contact our office for additional information.
Flushing Water Mains
The process of periodically "flushing" water lines with fire hydrants, is an important preventive maintenance activity and part of our water quality testing procedures. Although it may appear to waste water, this process is part of a routine maintenance program necessary to maintain the integrity of the water system and allowing us to continue to deliver the highest quality water possible to our customers. The flushing route is carefully planned, and valves are opened and closed to control the direction of the water flow. Flushing the water system on a routine basis removes sediment from lines and keeps the entire distribution system “refreshed." We keep our regular flushing schedule up to date on Facebook and under the
Need To Know
