Reminders:

  • When flushing is underway in your area, some discoloration of your water may occur, so clothes washing is discouraged.
  • If your clothes become discolored, keep them wet and rewash them using a rust remover. Rust remover is available, at no cost, from City Hall and Public Works offices.
  • The water is safe for drinking and bathing even though it may be discolored.
  • The discoloration is a result of rust and sediment buildup in the water lines and is not harmful. It should clear in approximately 24 hours.
  • Since the water mains are all interconnected, hydrant flushing in adjacent neighborhoods may possibly affect your water as well.

For more information, call the Public Works Department at 301-809-2344. Flushing hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the above dates.
