IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

 Iowa City will begin flushing hydrants on Monday, March 16.

This will help remove sediment and clean out water distribution pipes.

Hydrants will also be checked for repairs.

Rust from iron pipes may be released which could cause tap water discoloration.

The city advises to let the water run until it clears if this happens.
