City is flushing mains to improve water quality
Lancaster city Public Works Department will be performing a thorough flushing of water distribution mains through May 24 to promote maximum water quality.
Flushing will be done each night between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. and will move to different locations in the city. Each water main will be flushed at least once.
Customers may notice a slight cloudiness in the water and a reduction in water pressure during flushing operations. The situation should only be temporary. If customers continue to experience unclean water, they may call the city's water quality laboratory, at 291-4818, to report problems.
The public is also encouraged to report anyone other than city employees tampering with fire hydrants by calling 291-4816.
Updates on water main flushing can be found on the city website, at cityoflancasterpa.com.
