Water system testing/flushing planned




Village Water System, with the collaboration of individual fire district personnel, will be testing and flushing water mains within the next few weeks. Approximate starting time each date will be 8 a.m.

During this flushing program, members of the system may experience low water pressure and discolored water (red water). Although it’s not harmful to drink, this discoloration can affect laundry.

Although the condition is temporary, running the cold tap water for a short period of time can clear red water. The procedure necessary to sustain a good water distribution network, water quality and fire protection.

Dates for testing/flushing and the effected areas are:

·      Wednesday, Nov. 1: Mimosa Gardens I and II and South Merrywoods including Chandler Rd., Hwy. 614, Stewart, Baker and Daleen Rd.

·      Wednesday, Nov. 8: West of Wafer Rd. to Bellevue and Bodcau Station Rd., Dogwood Dr., Sterling Ranch, Tall Timbers and Espanita subdivisions.

·      Wednesday, Nov. 15: Wafer Rd. or east of Wafer to Hwy. 157 and Forest Hills.

·      Wednesday, Nov. 29: Make-up day in case any area has not been completed on the scheduled day.

Village Water System regrets any inconvenience. Thank you for your cooperation. Anyone with questions or concerns should please call 949-0223, operator 7.
