The City of Lake Elmo will be flushing hydrants beginning October 16th and will last three to four weeks. The flushing of hydrants may cause discolored or rusty water with low water pressure. This is normal and may be corrected by running your cold water for ten to fifteen minutes. Remember to watch for discolored water. If you will be doing laundry, it could cause staining.
The flushing will last three to four weeks and will occur from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Watch for work crews in your area and warn children to stay clear of work zones. The Public Works and Fire Department thank you for your cooperation.
