Templeton to conduct annual water main flush

tstrickland@thetribunenews.comJanuary 21, 2013 

Templeton residents may see slight changes in their water and water pressure in the upcoming weeks while the Community Services District cleans sediment and rust from neighborhood water mains.

Flushing allows the district to clean out the pipes and check for system problems. The effort occurs annually from the end of January to March, according to a news release from the district.

The mains are flushed through street valves and open fire hydrants “to force the flow of water in one direction to properly flush the water main,” the news release says.

Any changes to water clarity or pressure should be brief, officials said. Anyone who sees continuing changes in the water should call the district office at 434-4900.
