Lake Mills Light & Water will be flushing fire hydrants beginning May 15th until approximately May 26th. The regular flushing of fire hydrants is required by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Flushing hydrants often results in discolored or what appears to be dirty water in homes and businesses. This is caused by the disruption of sediment in the water pipes near the hydrant. The water is still safe, but LML&W recommends running water for a few minutes until water runs clear. This is particularly important for washing machines and dish washers to avoid staining clothes or dishes.
Questions can be directed to Harold Dunkleberger, Lead Water Foreman, or Paul Hermanson, Director of Public Works, at 648-4026.
