Lodi Utilities plans to clean and flush water mains throughout the city during the months of May and June. This program ensures the hydrants in the city are in working order. Additionally, the program provides routine cleaning of the pipes that carry drinking water.
Residents may notice some water discoloration during hydrant flushing or immediately after. The water is not harmful to drink. To clear the discoloration, open the cold water tap for a short period of time until the water runs clear. Clearing the discoloration is best done at an outside spigot or basement utility sink. Please contact Lodi Utilities with any questions.
