Roulette Line Flushing November 15th

Roulette Water Line Flushing Nov. 15th

 With the water shortage that until recently had been a local issue, and the fact that there have been multiple line repairs in the system that required sectional flushing over the past few months, I had hoped that we would be able to forego the fall line flushing in town. Unfortunately, we have just determined that will not be possible. With that in mind, we are rapidly running out of favorable temperatures for such an endeavor and must act now.

Our employees will begin flushing the water lines in Roulette on Thursday, November 15th. The flushing will begin at 9:00PM and will take approximately 8 hours. During that time, all Roulette residents should avoid utilizing any hot water to prevent drawing sediment into their hot water tank. As always it is strongly recommended that you run the cold water in your bathtub, and or an outside hose bib, to flush any sediment that may be drawn into your service line prior to use. It is also a good idea to then flush out your hot water tank reservoir to ensure that any sediment that may be laying at the bottom is removed before accelerating deterioration of the tank.

As I am flushing out my lines from an outside hose bib do you take that off my bill. First it is not going in the sewer and we all know that sewer water is more expensive than drinking water. And secondly this is a good way to run up my water bill. I do not understand why there are no such notifications in surrounding towns for this constant flushing notice? Other than a major line break I do not understand why the constant flushing is needed -- no filtration, old lines, of just to keep you busy???

1. Flushing of the main water lines twice per year is a industry standard. We don't filter our water, no need with our sources being ground water. Most of our lines are comparatively new, but no matter how new.they are or what they are made of, sediment needs to be flushed out to help prevent dirty water from entering your home or place of business. There are posts from many municipalities on this site each year announcing that sort of routine maintenance.

2. Flushing your water heater tank regularly is recommended by all tank manufacturers.

3. Flushing your service line is your choice. If you don't want clean water then don't do it.

4. Combined water and sewer consumption rates are $1.19 per 100 gallons. If you use more than 10 to 20 gallons I would be amazed. That would equal about 12 cents. Not much to pay for clean water, again up to you.

5. Any other questions or concerns can be addressed by calling 544-7549. I will not continue.use to attempt to resolve issues to anonymous posters on this, or any other site. It is impossible to tell if you even live in Roulette this way, let alone if you are a customer of ours.
