CLINTON — Iowa American Water has completed water main flushing of its Clinton distribution system.
The routine work was undertaken 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 wrapped up Monday near the west end of town. No interruptions in water service occurred as a result of the work. Iowa American Water maintains and services more than 1,200 fire hydrants in Clinton.
