As Mena Water flushes your area, you may experience a temporary reduction in water pressure. You may also see some color and/or sand in your water, or you may notice a slight change in the taste and odor of your water. These conditions are normal during flushing activities, and only temporary. If you should experience any of these changes, or if you see some cloudiness or rust color in your water, Mena Water recommends that you refrain from washing your light colored laundry; likewise, they recommend that you flush the pipes of your home or business. Flushing of your home or business’s pipes is accomplished by opening your front outside hose bib until it runs clear and has no noticeable taste or odor.
Mena Water regrets any inconvenience the flushing may cause you. If you have any questions or if you experience any persistent water quality problems as a result of this maintenance program, please call Mena Water Utilities at 394-2769.
