Citizens And Dogs!
Sorry. I couldn't resist the headline because the Water Services Division of the City of Decatur will be flushing fire hydrants to remove harmless materials that collect in the water mains beginning on September 29, 2014 until completed. Crews will work between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
During the hours of flushing residents connected to the City water system may experience discolored water and lower than normal water pressure. Residents should wait until the water clears up before drinking or washing clothes and dishes, even though the water is perfectly safe to drink.
The general area that could be impacted by the hydrant flushing is located east of Lake Decatur and north of U.S. Route 36 and include the Baker Woods, Bayview, Country Club, Country Manor, Lakeridge, North Fork and Shorewood neighborhoods.
For further information call Water Services at 875--5705.
