Mobile Area Water & Sewer System (MAWSS) will be flushing fire hydrants in west Mobile neighborhoods during the month of October.
Flushing is a maintenance activity that involves opening the hydrants and allowing water to flow freely for a short period of time. Flushing helps maintain water quality by cleaning out sediment and other particulates that accumulate normally in the water mains. As a result of the flushing, water may appear milky or have some temporary discoloration. Allow water to run a few minutes to clear before using. Avoid doing laundry as staining can occur.
Locations scheduled to be flushed include the Burma Rd. area, Dawes Pointe, Scott Dairy Loop Rd., Dawes Lake Rd. area, Randlett Trace, Carrington, Cottage Hill and Schillinger Rds., Country Squire, Sollie Rd. (west side), Crystal Key and Sollie Rd. (east side.)
Signs announcing the week and day of flushing will be posted in neighborhoods affected. A monthly schedule of flushing sites can be found at www.mawss.com under “What’s New at MAWSS” or call 694-3165 for more information.
