Yes! The City regularly samples water citywide and our wells are monitored 24/7 to ensure the safety and quality of our drinking water. As our drinking water supply comes from groundwater, at times color and smell can vary. In the event of a main break or pipe replacement, air can be introduced to the system causing ‘fizzy water’. Running your tap will resolve this issue. Our water team works hard to quickly resolve any concerns or disruptions to service.

Hydrant flushing is a practice used to clean pipes of sediment. It also ensures that hydrants are in working order in the event of an emergency. Performing this task citywide assists in maintaining and supplying clean water to all utility users. This is a manual task done by city employees. While we try to complete this during the late evening hours, some low water pressure may be experienced during daytime hours.
A Cross Connection is a physical connection (piping configuration) between the public drinking water system and anything else, including another water supply, that can allow pollutants or contaminants to backflow into the public water system.
Backflow occurs when a reverse flow of contaminated water or other substances from a customer's water system flows back into the public drinking water system. Not only is it the law to install backflow prevention mechanisms, it's important to make sure we protect our drinking water.
A backflow incident can seriously affect the quality and safety of our drinking water supply. Common examples of possible cross connections include landscape sprinkler systems, hose attachments for utility sinks, and garden hoses used for pools or other chemical contact purposes. Backflow prevention assemblies provide the public water system with protection against contamination or pollution. Learn how to help prevent cross connection with proper connection assemblies.
