MECHANICSBURG – The village will flush fire hydrants at 10 p.m. Friday, May 5, to remove sediment from the pipes to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution pipes. Village administrators say the water is safe to drink.
Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, run the cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears. If it doesn’t clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. People are advised to avoid washing clothes until the water clears.
