The Zanesville Fire Department began its annual hydrant flushing this week...and they say residents should expect to see muddy water, low water pressure, and at times, no water at all. The process will take about 2 months to complete, as there are more than 1,000 hydrants throughout the city that need flushed. This year the fire department is having a heavier water flow, due to large amounts of metal, rocks and foreign materials found within the hydrants. The process started in South Zanesville, and will continue there for another 3 weeks. It is recommended that if flushing is happening in your neighborhood on a particualr day, refrain from washing laundry. Also, check water coming out of the tap and the bathtub before using. The flushing process is scheduled to be completed by mid-July.
