Has your water service been restored? Don't forget to flush your pipes!

  • If you’re having your water service restored, you need to flush your pipes for thirty minutes!

Most people are able to flush their home properly themselves by following some simple directions. Watch this video to learn how or visit us at to download a printable guidance document.
