Notice of Fire Hydrant Flushing Valve Operation

 The New Richmond Utility Water Department will be involved in a water main and fire hydrant flushing and valve operation program starting May 6, 2019.

 This notice is to inform our customers that the flushing and valve operation will cause some areas to be without water for short periods of time and a decrease in pressure which may affect automatic flushing and pressure sensitive equipment.

 Residents may also notice mineral particles in their water that can affect laundry operations.  If mineral particles are detected, cold water should be run to clear out household water lines.  If the problem persists, residents should contact the New Richmond Water Department at (715) 246-4167.
