Oberlin Water System to be Flushed

July 7, 2011

The Oberlin Water Department will be flushing water mains in the city to test fire hydrants and improve water quality. This routine maintenance procedure will begin Tuesday, July 5, 2011 and continue through Friday, July 15, 2011.

The majority of the flushing will be performed between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., in order to minimize inconvenience to water customers. If required, flushing may continue during daytime hours.

The patience and cooperation of the City's water customers will be appreciated during this time. Please check tap water for discoloration before starting laundry or food preparation. If the water is cloudy, only cold water faucets should be turned on until water clears.

Sincerely, Jerry J Hade Water Superintendent City of Oberlin
