Presque Isle Harbor Water Company periodically schedules flushing of the entire system in order to maintain the quality of water and operation of all fire hydrants.
There may be water discoloration during flushing which conditions are not harmful. Simply let your cold water tap run until the water becomes clear again. It is recommended not to operate dishwashers or washing machines for laundry during flushing. It is also recommended that you turn off and drain your water heater during flushing to prevent collection of discolored water in your hot water supply.
Spring 2020 flushing is currently in progress.
Presque Isle Harbor Water Company typically flushes the entire distribution system in the early spring of each year. We also complete a limited flushing program in the fall.
The spring time flushing program will typically take 3 weeks and the fall flushing will take 2 weeks depending on the weather encountered during this work.
You may experience low pressure temporarily if we are working in your area.
Thank you for your patience during this extremely important maintenance of the community water distribution system.
