NOTICE TO ALL WATER CONSUMERS WE WILL BE FLUSHING HYDRANTS Not all, but in some neighborhoods, this work may result in water taking a cloudy or riled appearance for a short time. The flushing crews will take every precaution to eliminate as much of this as possible, but in order to clear the mains of accumulated rust and to make sure that all fire hydrants are in the best possible condition, a certain amount of disturbance is unavoidable. The purity and safety of the water will not be affected. It will contain nothing harmful, so if it happens in your neighborhood do not be alarmed. After the job is finished your water will soon return to its usual sparkle and clearness. Flushing will be done on Wednesday, Thursday, and Fri- day, May 26th, 27th and 28th.
