Fire hydrants in the Downtown Iowa City area will undergo flushing and maintenance beginning at 11 p.m. on Thursday, May 6 through 7 a.m. on Friday, May 7, 2021. This work is done as part of the Water Division's annual maintenance program.
The flushing activities will occur in various locations and will have a minimum impact on the normal flow of traffic for motorists and pedestrians.
Businesses, homeowners and tenants in the Downtown area are reminded that if rusty-colored water comes from their taps during this time, they should run their water until it clears. They may also want to avoid doing laundry while flushing is underway to avoid any discoloration.
