Aqua Ohio to conclude flushing Tiffin water system
Tiffin, Ohio — Aqua Ohio’s Tiffin division is set to conclude its water main flushing program next week, which is part of the company’s regular maintenance program to enhance water quality, reliability, and fire protection.
Water main flushing is an important process that ensures hydrants and valves are working correctly and helps prevent sediment buildup. Aqua Ohio consistently meets or exceeds all drinking water standards, and maintaining the distribution system helps preserve that quality and reliability, according to a press release from the company.
The water main flushing program will take place on Monday, May 1, and Tuesday, May 2, between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., in the Tiffin service area. During this time, customers may notice a drop in water pressure or temporary water discoloration. However, there will be no interruptions in water service as a result of the flushing.
If possible, customers are advised to refrain from doing laundry to avoid possible staining while the flushing is taking place near their home. If tap water is discolored, allow it to run until clear. Running several cold-water faucets at the same time will help the water clear faster.
The week 4 flushing schedule is as follows:
- Monday, May 1: East Perry Street from Jefferson Street to Autumnwood Drive, East Market Street from Jefferson Street to East Perry Street, Rebecca Street, Circular Street from Rebecca Street to East Perry Street, Greenfield Street, Kennat Boulevard, Holmes Street, Greenlawn Drive, Greeley Street, McCollum Street, Lewis Street, and Autumnwood Drive.
