Flushing of city water lines continues

Some Marion water customers may experience discoloration from the tap or air in the line this week.

According to City Administrator Mark Bryant, municipal utility workers will continue the city's systematic flushing of water lines through Thursday. Work begins after 9 p.m. each night.

The flushing of hydrants began Sunday.

The City of Marion periodically flushes its system to maintain the quality of water. Water main flushing can result in discolored water. These conditions are not harmful and should not last very long. Briefly running the cold water tap may help to clear discolored water.

“Just let it run, it should clear up,” Bryant added.
