Hydrant flushing and valve turning will be ongoing from April 30 through Oct. 31.

Customers are reminded that some discoloration may occur in their water and that the water is safe and is NOT harmful to one's health. The discoloration is caused by encrusted minerals being flushed from the walls of the mains. The best way to deal with this is to turn on the cold tap and let the water run until it runs clear. For more information, contact the Monroe Utilities office at 329-2483 Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
