city0f Port <br /> Townsend <br /> City of Port Townsend Water System Flushing <br /> 3/17/17 <br /> The City of Port Townsend Water Department is conducting water system flushing in the <br /> southwest area of town now through March 22 and planning to flush the downtown and port area <br /> the evening of March 23. <br /> Water distribution lines need to be flushed periodically to prevent water quality problems. <br /> Flushing traces of minerals and sediment from the pipelines may cause short term changes in the <br /> appearance of the water, however the water is still safe to drink. <br /> Brownish colored water can usually be eliminated by running taps for a few minutes. If the <br /> water does not clear up, please call 379-5001. <br />
