Watermains in Faribault will be flushed the week of Sept. 26-29, 2021, on
four separate nights, weather dependent.

Watermains are routinely flushed to clean the distribution system. Residents are advised to avoid or limit water usage during the flushing period and check for discoloration prior to using water for laundry purposes. 

If discoloration exists,residents should run the cold water tap until it becomes clear. It is recommended that residents shut water off at the meter to avoid drawing in rust, particles, or
other debris that is being flushed from the lines.
