Crews will move through zones in consecutive order, starting with Zone 1. It takes approximately one week to complete each zone. 

Residents and business owners should use caution during this flushing period, as turbulence may occur in the water main and travel into customer water pipes
. If this happens, flush the cold water line until the water runs clear. (Turbulence is cloudy water, sometimes brownish red in color that may stain or discolor clothing and food products.)
