Woodmere residents should be advised that hydrant flushing will be conducted from Sunday, May 5 through Tuesday, May 7.
When hydrant flushing occurs in your community, you may notice slightly yellow, orange, or brown-colored water coming from your faucet. If this happens, simply run the cold water tap for three to five minutes. If the water is still discolored, wait about 30 minutes and run the water again.
While the water is safe to drink, you should avoid washing laundry during scheduled flushing times, as the flushed sediment could discolor white clothing. Wait until the water runs clear at the tap, then wash a load of dark clothes first. You should also avoid using hot water until the cold water runs clear.
If you experience discoloration for a prolonged time or if you experience a significant loss of water pressure after hydrant flushing has occurred, please call our Water Emergency Line at 216-664-3060.Learn more about hydrant flushing and why its important at:
