The City of Ellsworth's Water Department will be flushing hydrants this week,  October 4th through October 8th.

The flushing of the hydrants is done twice a year, in the Spring and Fall. The purpose is to clean the lines, and to prevent possible problems in the future.

During the flushing, residents along the routes may experience dirty or yellow water, low water flow or low pressure.  This is both expected and temporary but should subside soon after the flushing is complete.

Please contact the Ellsworth Water Department at 667-8632 with any questions.
