Some discoloration of your water may occur and clothes washing is discouraged.  If your clothes become discolored, keep them wet and re-wash them using a rust remover.  Rust remover will be 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 build up in the water lines and is not harmful.  The discolora­tion should clear in approximately 24 hours.  However, since the water mains are all interconnected, flushing of hydrants in adjacent sections could affect your water as well.
