Each year the Henry County Water District begins its comprehensive unidirectional flushing program throughout the Counties that we provide water to. Our goal is to ensure that water quality is maintained at optimal levels. This is done by properly maintaining the District's water distribution system. The flushing process is when water is moved through a water line at a high velocity so that a "scouring" action is created. This removes any material build-up in the water line. The entire flushing process is critical to the maintenance of water quality to our system. Iron sediments and manganese both occur naturally in water. The sediments do not pose any health concerns but they do affect the taste, clarity and color of the water. We recommend you do not use the water or do any laundry for about an hour if you notice a reddish, yellow or brown tint to your water. If you notice these changes in your water, run your faucets for a few minutes to make sure the water is clear and you may resume normal water usage. We apologize for any inconvenience however this is a mandatory flushing program that MUST be done.
