While this work is happening, water customers may experience cloudy or discolored water and lower than usual water pressure. There is the possibility of air in water lines. Residents can reduce this by running their water for 10 minutes to clear the lines.
This annual maintenance program is vital to help ensure the continued delivery of high-quality water to homes and businesses in Edwardsville. During this program, the Water Division also checks that fire hydrants around the city are operational to help maintain public safety.
