City to begin hydrant flushing

By Herald Staff

JASPER — Beginning Monday, April 5, weather permitting, the Jasper Municipal Water Department will initiate the spring hydrant flushing and maintenance program. Flushing hours are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The spring hydrant flushing will last for the next several weeks until all city hydrants have been flushed. If you have any questions, call the Jasper Municipal Water Department at 482-5252.

Company officials say the water will be safe to drink, however, customers should use their own discretion if doing laundry during this time because clothes may become discolored. Should anyone experience cloudy or colored water, they are asked to run the cold water tap until it clears.
