Warrenton flushing water lines through May 3

The Town of Warrenton Utilities Department has begun its biannual flushing of the water lines throughout the distribution system.

This is a standard maintenance practice normally performed twice a year to clear the water lines of any sediment and to inspect and exercise the valves and fire hydrants in the process. As part of the town’s water line maintenance program, crews will be flushing water lines throughout the Monday through Thursday until May 3. The work will take place 5 and 11 p.m. Some water line flushing also will take place during regular business hours.

If you experience any discoloration in your water, such as a rusty or brownish color, that normally can be resolved by running your cold water until it clears. The process usually takes two to seven minutes.

Do not run the hot water to clear up the water. This only allows the discolored water to enter the hot water tank.

If the water remains discolored after all attempts have to clear it, contact Warrenton Utilities Superintendent Jonathon Weakley at 540-347-1858 and a service person will respond to determine if problems exist.
