Unidirectional Water Main Flushing Project to Begin May 24
The MPU Water Department will be performing Unidirectional Flushing (UDF) of the water mains to remove settled particles and clean the mains in the City of Manitowoc starting May 24. Customers within the flushing zones will be notified via mailer or letter. Crews will also be posting signs in the flushing areas while working. While we are flushing, customers may notice reduced water pressure, large volumes of water on streets, and/or discoloration of water for a short time. We recommend customers avoid using their water while UDF is happening. If there is a need to use water, first run the cold water to remove any particles from your system. After UDF is complete in your area, flush your cold water until it is clear before using it. If you have questions about this process, please go to www.mpu.org/water-utility/udf for a list of frequently asked questions and to see updates and our scheduled flushing areas.
