Annual Water System Flushing

The Waupaca Water Utility’s Annual Flushing Program
will be done during the week of September 23 – 28, 2018
during the hours of 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m., and October 1
– October 5, 2018 during the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 3:30
p.m. This flushing of the water mains will remove most of
the natural minerals such as iron that are harmless, but will
discolor the water. If you see our staff working in your
area, use as little or, if possible, no water for one-half to
three quarters of an hour to insure that the water has settled
down and that the discoloration is not drawn into
your home’s water system. Should you find discoloration,
stop using water, wait one-half to three quarters of an
hour, then draw off the discolored water through the cold
water only. Your help and cooperation in this program will benefit all
water consumers.
