The Village of McConnelsville Water Department is extending residential semi-annual flushing for two more weeks. The flushing will be done during daylight hours from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Flushing started the week of October 28 and will continue to November 21.

Village of McConnelsville Utilities customers are advised to check for discoloration prior to washing any clothes. If employees from the Water Department are seen working in the area, please use as little, or, if possible, no water for 45 minutes to ensure that the water has settled down and that the discoloration is not drawn into the home’s water softener or hot water heater. Our best advice is to have you wait until after 4 p.m. before washing clothes to minimize potential discoloration. Under certain circumstances, a hydrant being flushed 6-10 blocks away can cause water discoloration.
