City of Marion to begin flushing fire hydrants

Posted:
MARION (KWWL) -

The Marion Water Department will begin flushing the water system on the week of Monday, May 14.

The flushing will continue until Friday, June 15 beginning each day at 8 a.m. and continuing until 2 a.m.

Officials say Marion residents may notice some temporary discoloration of the water after flushing in nearby neighborhoods.

Officials recommend residents wait to do laundry until the discoloration clears out.

The rusty color is a result of iron sediment in the water mains, but is not harmful.
