FALCONER, NY (WNY News Now) – Fall water main flushing has been rescheduled due to high water levels.
The Jamestown Board of Public Utilities was on tap to flush the mains as part of a bi-annual maintenance process on Friday night, however due to this week’s heavy rain, the “pre-flush” in Falconer is on hold for now.
The full system-wide flush is still scheduled to begin on Monday starting at 8:30 a.m. and running through 4:30 p.m. During flushing, discolored water can occur, which generally clears in 12 to 24 hours.
Although the water is safe to use, it may be displeasing in appearance. You may want to delay washing clothes until the water appears to be clear again.
