The City of Akron, Water Distribution Division, will be conducting a water main flushing program within its service areas. Beginning on approximately Monday, April 23, the hydrant flushing crews will begin flushing hydrants in the Hudson area to help maintain the water quality and to increase and evaluate the amount of water available for firefighting purposes. The Water Department will be flowing hydrants from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on MONDAY through FRIDAY DAYS.
A discoloration to water is likely to appear. We urge the water users to check their cold water for discoloration prior to drawing water for cooking and for use in automatic washers and dishwashers. If discoloration is found, the water user is advised to discontinue use until water clears.
