The City of Soldotna is preparing for a downturn in temperatures by flushing water mains from October 7 through October 9. The maintenance will occur from 7:30am to 4:30pm each day, and may affect local water pressure and water color.
City Engineer Kyle Kornelis explains…
Kornelis: “Our utility department is doing their pre-winter activities. They’re flushing lines and getting hydrants prepared for winter to make sure that we have adequate fire protection though the winter, and not have any freezing problems with our mains and different piping systems.”
If you do see some discoloration of city water, let the cold water run until the color clears.
