Hydrant flushing in West Lafayette over next several weeks

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Indiana American Water employees will be conducting hydrant flushing in portions of the West Lafayette area over the next several weeks as part of the process for bringing two new water treatment facilities online. The affected are is generally located north of Meridian Street/Kingston Drive and to the north and west of Purdue University. The flushing is being done to clean out water lines and to replace the unfiltered water with filtered water from the recently completed treatment facilities.

Crews will open and flush fire hydrants from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 15 through July 3, 2009. The company conducts this program to maintain water quality and to ensure hydrants are working as they should. By opening fire hydrants under controlled conditions, sediments are flushed from the system, resulting in cleaner pipes, better water quality, and improved capacity. The program also helps to make sure fire hydrants are in good working order and that any needed repairs are made. Flushing is part of a regular maintenance program for water distribution system.

Customers may experience a slight drop in water pressure or a temporary discoloration of their water while this program is underway. Customers should refrain from doing laundry while flushing is taking place. If discoloration should occur, Indiana-American recommends allowing several cold-water faucets to run for a short time until the water runs clear. Customers who have questions regarding hydrant flushing may call our customer service center at 800-492-8373.

  1. Patty Spencer says:

    I am concerned about our water. It has been extremely dirty brown, several times this month. It is appearing in the laundry, tubs and toliets.

    I do not believe Floyds Knobs Water Company is performing the proactive flushing needed.

    How sick will this make my family? I’m considering litigation.
