Don't be alarmed if your water is discolored: Hopkins Public Works utility crews will be flushing fire hydrants throughout the community April 9-27 between the hours of 10:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. Residents are cautioned against doing laundry - particularly whites - while crews are in the neighborhood.
Hydrant Flushing Schedule:
- April 9-13: Hydrants north of Excelsior Boulevard and west of Highway 169
- April 16-20: Hydrants south of Excelsior Boulevard and west of Highway 169
- April 23-27: 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.
