LU announces public notices for spring flushing of mains

February 27, 2019



City of Lawrence Utilities will be flushing water mainsduring normal business hours from Monday, April 1 through Friday, May 3, 2019.

As a result of this activity, some customers may experience a temporary discoloration of their water and/or a low water pressure condition.  Color can range from a light yellow to an orange-red.  If this occurs, the customer should run a medium stream of cold water until the water clears.  If a customer is experiencing this problem, the customer should not run hot water or wash clothes until the water clears up. The City does not reimburse customers for water used to flush their service lines due to iron discoloration. Main flushing is necessary in order to properly maintain the water distribution system and helps to improve water quality and maintain adequate disinfectant levels per regulatory requirements. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact City of Lawrence Utilities at (317) 542-0511, press 0 to speak with a Customer Service representative.
