North Lewisburg to perform hydrant flushing


NORTH LEWISBURG – The village will perform hydrant flushing this week starting on Monday and running through Friday.

The announcement was made last week during the regular council meeting on May 10.

Village Administrator Andy Yoder said during the meeting this is the first hydrant flushing performed in the village this year so there would probably be some disruption in the system, discoloration and low pressure.
