The Essex Junction Water Department will be flushing fire hydrants from May 9 to May 20 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. This may cause some discoloration of water. If you notice discoloration, run the spigot on the outside of your house for a few minutes and then run your cold water inside of your house until it clears up. The water is safe, despite looking unusual, though it can stain white clothes if you are doing laundry.
Please call Village Public Works at 878-6944 if you have any questions.
