LIMA — Personnel from the Lima Fire Department will be flushing fire hydrants during the month of May to provide better quality water and fire protection. Flushing could continue into June, depending on weather conditions.
Customers may experience fluctuations in pressure and/or discoloration of their water during flushing, according to a department spokesperson. If you experience discolored water, run your cold water tap until it clears. During periods of discoloration, postpone washing clothes until water clears.
If clothes get discolored, contact the fire department at 419-221-5151 for cleaning solutions.
