In an ongoing effort to provide the residents with quality drinking water, the Water Division is conducting a townwide water system Flushing Program which began April 15. The program will begin in East Lexington and in West Lexington and continue moving into the middle of town until the flushing is completed.

In an effort to minimize any inconvenience, flushing of the water system will be completed between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. No flushing will be done during the weekends.

Residents may experience some discoloration in their water in the areas being flushed. If discoloration does occur, it is asks that residents run their cold water from a none-filtered faucet, like a bathtub or basement sink, for a short time to clear up the water.

The water department apologizes for any inconvenience that may occur.
