The city of Fond du lac’s bi-annual citywide water main flushing is underway. Water Operations manager, Kathy Scharf, says the flushing began Monday in the southeast section of the city and will continue
in the northeast neighborhoods Tuesday, the southwest area Wednesday morning and finish in the northwest quadrant Wednesday afternoon. Scharf says the flushing is designed to improve the overall water quality.
Scharf says during hydrant flushing there may be a slight discoloration of water, but poses no health risk. However you should not do laundry or use automatic ice machines until the water runs clear from your tap.
