The Public Works Department has recently been receiving calls from residents about instances of cloudy or rusty water occurring in the Ridgewood subdivision. A hydrant flushing was conducted on June 24th to try and flush sediment out of the system. After monitoring the results of the hydrant flushing it appears that the water quality and iron has not improved in the Ridgewood subdivision thus far.
The Public Works Department has scheduled a follow up leak detection survey by M.E. Simpson, Inc. in the entire Ridgewood subdivision for Monday, July 15th to determine if there is an underground water main break that is not surfacing. A break in the pipe may be causing a change in the flow of the water in the subdivision which may result in additional sediment in the subdivision.
Residents should not expect any disruption to their water service while the leak detection is ongoing. Additional information from the results of the leak detection will be posted once they are available.
