The City of Stow will begin its biannual hydrant flushing program on Monday, March 25, 2019. Signs will be posted in work areas prior to the start of the program, and as the program moves into various sections of the City.
The program will begin with City crews flushing hydrants in the southeast quadrant of the city. Crews will proceed with flushing along Fishcreek Road and areas to the east. From there, crews will progress to the center of the city, and then the north and south sections of the city will be flushed. The program will end with crews flushing the west side of the city. All residential and commercial areas will be flushed during the daytime and/or evening hours.
The department advises that customers refrain from doing laundry, and also refrain from using water for cooking or medical needs while crews are flushing in your immediate area. All customers are reminded to observe changes in water clarity during this program. If water is discolored, let the cold water tap run for several minutes until water is clear. If water does not clear within a few minutes, customers are advised to wait 1-2 hours and repeat the process. Pressure fluctuations may also be experienced during this time. Pressure will return to normal as lines stabilize. Further information may be obtained from the City of Stow’s official website, at StowOhio.org or by contacting the Stow Water Department at 330-689-2911.
