As soon as the demand for water drops, the District will begin its semi annual water main flushing program. This program is the mid-term action plan to scour the inner linings of the pipes. Water main flushing uses high volumes of water systematically flushed through specific hydrants to clean the distribution system.
Our long term plans include the construction of an iron and manganese removal treatment plant at the Glen Drive Wells. The District is already in the design and engineering phase of this $5.25 million dollar project and hopes to have the plans in place in mid October for a District wide vote. This filter plant should alleviate the majority of quality concerns in the areas impacted by discolored water. The District is also exploring other source options such as new wells and outside water sources.
