By Indiana American Water— 

MUNCIE, INIndiana American Water is conducting water main flushing in its Muncie service area this month, beginning May 15 through July 15, 2024. Expect crews to be in area neighborhoods starting at 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on most days, weather permitting.

The company conducts annual maintenance programs to assure high-quality water service and to ensure fire hydrants are operational.  Indiana American Water is responsible for over 31,000 fire hydrants in communities across the state.

Water main and fire hydrant flushing are an important part of a regular maintenance program for water distribution systems.  Indiana American Water consistently meets or exceeds all drinking water standards.

No interruptions in water service will occur as a result of the work. Customers may experience a slight drop in water pressure or temporary water discoloration while this program is underway. Customers should refrain from doing laundry during the time of day when the flushing program is taking place in or near their neighborhood.

If tap water is discolored, Indiana American Water recommends allowing several cold-water faucets to run for a short time until the water runs clear. Using more than one faucet allows the water to clear more quickly.

Customers who have questions regarding hydrant flushing may call our Customer Service Center at 800-492-8373.
