Fire Hydrant Flushing Scheduled for This Week in Knox

HydrantFire hydrant flushing in the City of Knox will take place Monday, April 21 through Friday, April 25.

Flushing will take place during the day. If you come across standing water in the road, drive carefully or turn around and take a different route. If you experience rusty water, turn on the faucet and let the water run until it runs clear.

Water Superintendent Todd Gardner said crews flush fire hydrants to flush out any iron and sediment out of the water system that has collected over the summer months.

If you have any questions, call the Knox Water Department at (574) 772-4461.
