[ARCHIVED] ARWA Announces Schedule for Annual Waterline Flushing Program

The Appomattox River Water Authority (ARWA) announced its schedule today for its annual water main line flushing program during the month of March.

For over the past twenty-one years, ARWA has annually flushed out its wholesale water transmission lines to remove any settled material (sediment, sand, etc.). Flushing of the system is a routine maintenance effort that helps assure appropriate water quality and availability to all ARWA customers. This process is completed by ARWA staff each year, generally in March to early April.

The current schedule this year calls for the water main transmission line flushing to occur on March 22, 23, and 25.
While it is possible for this maintenance process to create some discoloration of water in isolated situations, it will have no adverse effect on the quality or safety of drinking water.

ARWA customers with questions or concerns about the waterline flushing program are encouraged to call ARWA at 590-1145 or contact their local water service provider directly.
