Why flush water mains?
Flushing or “scouring” water mains helps to clear the distribution pipes of sediment and mineral build-up. Hydrants are systematically opened to increase flows, allowing us to “flush” minerals and deposits from the pipes. This practice not only extends the life of the water mains but also improves water quality.
Discolored Water Advisory
Due to the water main flushing, Talquin Electric Cooperative water Members in the Wakulla Regional Water System may experience discolored tap water due to shifting sediments in the water main. This water is safe to drink and does not require boiling, but washing clothes with discolored water may tint or stain garments.
What should I do?
Please make sure to run water from an outside spigot or bathtub faucet to assure that water has been flushed before operating appliances. If sediment is present in the water, let it settle before drinking.
Water Pressure Loss
Due to the water main flushing, Talquin Electric Cooperative water Members in the Wakulla Regional Water System may experience loss of water pressure for short durations. The water pressure should return quickly once the water main flushing is completed.
