FIRE HYDRANT FLUSHING NOTICE


DEAR CUSTOMER: E. INDUSTRIAL WAY; CENTRAL INDUSTRIAL; GARDEN RD.; BLUE HERON BLVD.; INTERSTATE PARK ROAD NORTH; INTERSTATE PARK ROAD WEST; INTERSTATE PARK WAY.


THIS NOTICE IS TO INFORM AFFECTED RESIDENTS AND BUSINESS OWNERS THAT THERE WILL BE FLUSHING OF THE WATER MAINS VIA FIRE HYDRANTS LOCATED IN YOUR AREA.
MORE SPECIFICALLY,

ON Sunday, May 16th, 2021 BETWEEN THE TIMES OF 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM



PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT YOU MAY EXPERIENCE A DROP IN YOUR WATER PRESSURE DURING THIS PROCESS. THEREFORE, PLEASE TRY NOT TO USE THE WATER DURING THIS TIME.

 
1. THE WATER WILL LIKELY APPEAR CLOUDY AS THE PIPES ARE BEING FLUSHED.
2. AFTER FLUSHING IS COMPLETE, WE RECOMMEND RUNNING YOUR COLD WATER IN YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS BETWEEN 5 – 15 MINUTES TO RESTORE CLEAR WATER.
3. SINCE WATER FOR HOT WATER TANKS IS REPLENISHED FROM COLDWATER, PLEASE AVOID USING HOT WATER SO THAT THE CLOUDY WATER DOES NOT ENTER THE HOT WATER TANK.
4. IF YOU HAVE A WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM OR WATER FILTER, DO NOT CHOOSE A TAP THAT HAS A WATER FILTER CONNECTED TO IT BECAUSE SEDIMENT MAY CLOG THE FILTER.

THOUGH THE WATER MAY BE DISCOLORED, IT IS SAFE TO DRINK. HOWEVER, UNTIL THE WATER RUNS CLEAR, IT IS ADVISABLE TO AVOID WASHING CLOTHES, ESPECIALLY WHITE FABRICS. IF ANY RUST STAINS APPEAR ON YOUR WET LAUNDRY, DO NOT DRY YOUR CLOTHES. SIMPLY RUN THE COLD WATER IN YOUR HOUSE OR AT A HOSE UNTIL IT IS CLEAR AND THEN WASH CLOTHING AGAIN.

IF YOU EXPERIENCE AN INTERRUPTION OF WATER, THE WATER IS STILL DISCOLORED/CLOUDY ONE DAY AFTER FLUSHING, HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR REQUIRE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, PLEASE CONTACT THE UTILITY SPECIAL DISTRICT ADMINISTRATION OFFICE BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 8:00 AM AND 5:00 PM, MONDAY THROUGH
FRIDAY AT (561) 845-4185. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY
INCONVENIENCE CAUSED AS A RESULT OF THESE IMPROVEMENTS.
