The City's annual hydrant flushing program begins today and will last approximately two weeks.

The system is scheduled to be flushed starting at 7:30 a.m. Monday and will begin in Orchard Mesa.

Because of the flushing, you many notice discolored water, low water pressure, and large amounts of water in the streets and gutters.

Officials say if you notice discolored water just leave it running until it starts running clear.

The City flushes the hydrants every year to keep the system fresh and eliminate conditions which allow bacteria to grow.
