Hydrant Flushing

This is Jim Killian with the Gibson City Public Works Department with an important message for Gibson City residents.

At 11 PM on Sunday, May 15,2016 , workers will begin the process of flushing water mains.

The goal of this exercise is to remove naturally-occurring  rust and sediment from the water distribution system.

Workers will begin on the northwest quarter of town, then to the northeast, on to the southeast, and concluding with the southwest quarter of town and the industrial park.

An unavoidable consequence of this process is that residents may notice water discoloration.  This condition is temporary, and will clear up within a few hours.

The water is safe for cooking and cleaning; however, residents are advised to avoid doing laundry if rust is noticeable in the water—especially white, light, and bright-colored garments and articles.

This water main flushing project should conclude within 14 to21 days.

The Gibson City Public Works Department regrets any inconvenience.
