Don't be alarmed if your water is discolored: Hopkins Public Works utility crews will be flushing fire hydrants throughout the community through May 1. Residents are cautioned against doing laundry - particularly light colored items - while crews are in the neighborhood.
Hydrant Flushing Schedule:
- April 20-24: Hydrants south of Excelsior Boulevard and west of Highway 169
- April 27-May 1: Hydrants east of Highway 169
If water is still discolored once crews leave, residents should run the cold water until it runs clear. More information is available here.
