Water Main Flushing to Happen this Week

The City of Fond du Lac Water Utility has scheduled bi-annual water main flushing for this week. The flushing will take place in the northeast part of the city on Monday, southeast on Tuesday, and then the northwest and southwest on Wednesday. The flushing cleans the interior of pipes, getting rid of mineral sentiments. The process may cause a slight discoloration of water – but that is temporary and poses no health risks. Residents are asked not to do laundry or other tasks until the water runs clear. It’s also advised not to run water while crews are flushing on your street.
