Hydrant Flushing Currently Underway
The Marion Water Department will be flushing the water system at various times, from mid-April to mid-May.
Residents may notice some temporary discoloration of the water following flushing in your area and should postpone laundry until it clears. The discoloration is due to accumulation of iron sediment in the water mains and is not harmful.
Flushing of mains is done annually to remove sediment from the mains and to check operation of the city’s fire hydrants.
