Kenai to Begin Hydrant Flushing

Kenai is preparing to start their annual hydrant flushing, which may cause a change in water for City residents. Public Works Director Sean Wedemeyer said the impact should be minor…


Wedemeyer: “The only thing that they would see in their water is an increase in color, which is caused by tannins, which is organic and natural and non-hazardous.”


Wedemeyer said they’re flushing the hydrants to comply with state and federal regulations. If your water becomes colored or cloudy…


Wedemeyer: “They are free to open their tap and run their water until the water runs clear. If it takes more than 30 minutes  I would encourage them to call me.”


Wedemeyer’s number is 283-8200, ext.8240
