Roulette Water Line Flushing Nov. 15thWith 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.
