Hydrant flushing slated Wednesday, Thursday

Water Service Corporation of Kentucky in Middlesboro will be conducting routine fire hydrant flushing Sept. 23 and 24 beginning at 6 p.m.

During this flushing process, you may experience periods of lower than normal water pressure or possible cloudy water during this time period each day.

Customers are asked to refrain from using water as much as possible during that time to reduce the possibility of drawing cloudy or discolored water into your service lines. Once flushing is complete, normal water quality and pressure will be restored to your home.

Should customers experience any water quality issues following the flushing, they are asked to attempt to flush their cold water line for approximately two to three minutes. If it does not improve the quality, contact the water service immediately.

For more information, contact the customer service department at 800-272-1919.
