Main flushing to begin

CLINTON — Iowa American Water is planning to conduct water main flushing in Clinton beginning today and continuing through May 3.

The routine work is being done as part of an annual water main flushing program that enhances customer water service by flushing or cleaning mineral deposits and sediment from water mains.

“The flushing program is designed not only to maintain a high quality of water in the Clinton distribution system, but to inspect and operate fire hydrants to assure they are in good working order as well,” said Gerry Freudenberg, operations superintendent for the Clinton district.

The flushing was scheduled to begin in downtown Clinton at 4 a.m. today. Flushing will also begin at 4 a.m. Wednesday near the west end of town. The remainder of the flushing will occur during normal business hours Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning on Thursday. During the flushing, it may be necessary for water company crews to temporarily close streets they are working on for very brief periods of time.

No interruptions in water service will occur as a result of the work. Iowa American Water advises that when crews are flushing nearby, customers may experience a drop in water pressure or some discoloration of their water. Iowa American Water recommends that customers experiencing discolored water let their cold water run to clear before using it again and refrain from doing laundry during that time.

Any water discoloration or low pressure problems should last only a short period of time. If problems persist, notify Iowa American Water’s customer service line toll-free, 24-hours a day, at 1-866-641-2108.

The water main flushing will be performed by Iowa American Water crews. They will be working out of trucks identified with the company logo. All employees will also have photo ID badges.

  • Interest in Ernst rises as his game does, too

    Brady Ernst is having a summer to remember.
    The rising River King senior is spending the summer playing for the Iowa Barnstormers traveling basketball team. This weekend they're playing in the Fab48 tournament in Las Vegas.
    "I'm playing with a great group of guys," Ernst said in a telephone interview. "We lost our last game (Thursday) night, but it's all about getting better."
    River Kings coach Nick Lawrence said Ernst had worked on a few new aspects to his game.
    "What he has worked on and what we would like to see him do is step outside and shoot a little bit more," Lawrence said. "I've watched him play a little bit this summer, and he's made five or six that I've seen."
