The City of Moline Water Division announced Monday that they will be conducting hydrant flushing starting next week.

Moline Water Division personnel will begin hydrant flushing early morning on Monday, September 24th. Hydrant flushing will occur between 4AM and 8PM on weekdays, and the program will last for about three weeks. An approximate schedule can be found on the city's website: www.moline.il.us.

During the flushing operation, Water Division personnel will verify proper operation of more than 2,500 fire hydrants located throughout Moline. The systematic nature of this operation also serves to remove deposits and sediment that can accrue in the water mains.

Customers may experience some discoloration or cloudiness in their water for a short time following hydrant flushing in their area. Generally, this will clear up by running some water from a cold water tap for a few minutes. Although, the water is still considered safe to use during this time, customers should refrain from doing laundry while flushing is being conducted in their area.

Questions concerning the flushing operation should be directed to the Water Plant at 309.524.2300.
