Aqua Ohio to flush Tiffin water lines this week

Aqua Ohio is to conduct water main flushing in the Tiffin area 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

No interruptions in water service will occur as a result of the flushing but customers may notice a drop in water pressure or temporary water discoloration, according to a release.

The release states if possible, customers should refrain from doing laundry to avoid possible staining while the flushing is taking place near their home and if tap water is discolored, they should allow it to run until clear. Running several cold-water faucets at the same time will help the water clear faster, it states.

The release states this is a good time for ustomers to check and flush their home water system and they can find tips on home water system maintenance at www.aquaamerica.com/pages/customerservice.aspx. For more information, customers can call (877) 987-2782.
