NU Water Main Flushings Begin 07 May 13

The New Ulm Water Department begins the annual Spring process of flushing the city’s water mains on today (TUE). Flushings will be taking place between the hours of 8am to 3pm Monday through Friday until complete. Today’s water main flushings will include all of North and South Front Street. Water department officials say you should avoid doing any laundry when flushing is being done in your neighborhood. It is also advisable to allow about an hour after the daily flushing for water to clear. If you experience any discoloration after flushing in your area, run your water and it should clear up. If problems arise, contact the New Ulm Water Department.
