Hydrant flushing now underway

From staff reports

---- — Logansport Municipal Utilities has started its spring fire hydrant flushing and will continue through May 29.

During the first week, flushing will begin in the midtown/downtown area. The next two weeks, it will proceed through the East End. The following week will focus on the south side, with the final week moving to the west and north sides.

Flushing will be performed from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. nightly from Sunday through Thursday.

During the time of flushing, customers may notice lower water pressure and possibly discolored water. Typically, running a small amount of water after the flushing will clean up any residue remaining. If any problems persist following the flushing in your area, call LMU at 574-753-6231.
