Dalton: Hydrant flushing to begin April 14
The Dalton Fire District announces that the annual spring flushing of the water system will begin Monday, April 14.
Water mains throughout the town will be flushed over the next six weeks to remove accumulations of pipeline corrosion products. Mains will be flushed between the hours of 7:15 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. Monday through Friday each week, except holidays.
Although flushing may cause localized dirty water and reduced service pressure conditions in and around the immediate area of flushing, appropriate measures will be taken to ensure that proper levels of treatment and disinfection are maintained in the system at all times.
Should dirty water be experienced, customers may wish to let the water run for a short period to clear prior to use. Should dirty water or low pressure conditions persist after 3:30 p.m., contact the Water Department at (413) 684-6124 or (413) 684-0300.
