City of Port Townsend water lines get flushed

Posted

The city of Port Townsend will be conducting its annual water system flushing through January. 

Water distribution lines need to be flushed periodically to prevent water-quality problems, according to the city. Flushing traces of minerals and sediment from the  pipelines may cause short-term but harmless changes to the water, officials noted.

Customers may temporarily see brownish-colored water, which can be eliminated by keeping faucets open for a few minutes. If problems persist, water customers can call 360-379-5096.
