Periodically, during this work, customers may experience cloudy or discolored water, lower than usual water pressure and the possibility of air in their water lines, Martin said.

“The annual maintenance program is very important,” she said. “It helps to ensure continued delivery of high quality water to homes and businesses. We also check fire hydrants operation to help maintain public safety.”
