The annual flushing of campus fire hydrants will begin July 9 and continue for five weeks, according to Thomas Fydenkevez, mechanical utility manager at Physical Plant.
Flushing will begin at 3 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. every weekday. The perimeter of the campus will be done early in each shift and the core later in the shift. Residential areas, including North Village and Lincoln Apartments, will be notified two days before flushing.
Users may notice a discoloration in the water due to the flushing. Users should run water until it clears.
