City to Flush Water Lines

Lancaster City has announced plans to flush the mains of the water system.

The Department of Public Works will start the flushing operations at 10:00 p.m., Sunday, June 29th. The flushing of the water system will continue daily between the hours of 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM until approximately August 23rd. The schedule allows for the cleaning of each main at least once during the designated flushing dates.

City officials said the flushing may cause customers to observe a slight cloudiness in the water and a reduction in water pressure, but this occurrence should be temporary.
