Program enhances water quality, reliability and fire protection
TIFFIN, Ohio – Aqua Ohio’s Tiffin Division will conduct water main flushing in the Tiffin Service Area 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday, April 29, through Friday, May 3.
“Flushing is an important part of Aqua’s regular maintenance program. It ensures hydrants and valves are working properly and helps prevent sediment buildup,” said Jim Welty, Operations Supervisor for the Tiffin District. “Aqua Ohio consistently meets or exceeds all drinking water standards and maintaining the distribution system helps preserve that quality and reliability.”
No interruptions in water service will occur as a result of the flushing but customers may notice a drop in water pressure or temporary water discoloration. If possible, customers should refrain from doing laundry to avoid possible staining while the flushing is taking place near their home. If tap water is discolored, allow it to run until clear. Running several cold-water faucets at the same time will help the water clear faster.
