Fire Hydrant Flushing Scheduled for June 5-9


The City of Marion Utility Maintenance Department will flush fire hydrants during the week of June 5, 2023, to clean the water mains and lines.  Hydrants will be flushed from 11 p.m. – 5:00 a.m. on each day of that week, Monday June 5, 2023, through Friday June 9, 2023.
Flushing of the water system is performed as part of the city’s ongoing effort to provide safe drinking water of the highest quality to its customers.  While the Utility Maintenance Department will make every effort possible to avoid inconveniences to customers, the flushing process may cause temporary discoloration of water.  It may also create air pockets in pipes and plumbing fixtures.  If you experience either of these conditions, please open your water faucets and allow water to flow until clear. Before laundering clothes, please make sure water is clear.
If you experience a problem with your water or have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at 652-4224.
In the case of an emergency, please contact the Marion Police Department at 652-3231.
