THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, April 5, 2019 Page 17 Attention water user: hydrant flushing thru May 3 T he Water Department will be flushing water mains throughout Everett from April 3 through May 3. The purpose of flushing is to remove sediment buildup in the mains and to verify the safe operation of hydrants and valves. Hydrant flushing might result in temporary discoloration of the water caused by small particles that dislodge during the flushing, as well as a temporary reduction in pressure. Discolored water will be temporary and is not harmful; however, the discolored water might stain your laundry, especially white materials. Therefore, please avoid doing laundry during the noted flushing period Prior to washing clothes, including during times after the hours stated in this notice, please check the cold water for possible discoloration. If water is discolored, let the cold water run for a few minutes until water becomes clear. If it does not clear at that time, try again later. Unfortunately, the City of Everett cannot fully guarantee the safety of doing laundry and/or the possibility of discoloration even during the evenings and other times of the day as the water system has been disturbed.
