City of Orange City
Potable Water Distribution System Flushing
Flushing Dates: October 21, 2020 thru October 23, 2020
Private Potable Water System is not included in the City’s flushing program
Orange City Utilities (OCU) Department will be conducting our quarterly hydrant flushing and testing program. During this time, Utility crews will be flushing hydrants and water mains within the primary highlighted areas. All OCU Customers within the primary flushing zones will be notified via electronic message boards and other out-door signs.
OCU customers may experience reduced water pressure and/or discoloration. While your water will be safe for consumption, should you notice any discoloration of your water, we recommend that you run your household faucets (starting with your outside spigot) for several minutes. This should help to clear up any discoloration and result in the water running clear.
Residents should also avoid the use of their washer and dishwasher during this time to prevent possible staining of clothes and dishes.
Motorists should use extreme caution when driving through work zones, they should be aware of the utility crews and be prepared to stop if required to do so.
