The City of West Branch will be flushing fire hydrants beginning April 17th through April 28th during normal working hours. The City annually flushes hydrants to clean the City Water Supply System and to help the West Branch Fire Department with determining if all hydrants are working properly.
The City does not recommend doing laundry during the hours of the flushing program to help minimize any potential problems that could arise with the water system being disrupted. If you see discolored water coming from your faucet, let the water run until clear, this could take a couple of minutes.
Please contact Public Works Director Matt Goodale at 319-325-8213 or the City Office at 643-5888 with any questions or concerns.
