Time To Flush

The Montpelier Water Department will begin its annual fire hydrant flushing and flow-testing program on Monday, Aug. 8, and is expected to be completed on or before Friday, Aug. 26. During that time, village water customers may notice some discoloration in their water, officials say. The village reminds customers that these conditions are only temporary and the water is still safe to drink. Customers are encouraged to double-check the tap water prior to using an automatic washer, as the discolored, iron-stained water may stain light-colored clothing. This condition may appear anytime during the day or night. The water in the mains should return to normal within 30 minutes or less of the crew leaving the area and any stained water within a private plumbing system should clear out by letting the taps run a short time.
