The City of Fairmont Utilities will be conducting a water system flushing on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 thru Friday,
May 29, 2020 from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm……
This flushing process rapidly removes water from the system to carry out unwanted materials that accumulates in
our main transmission lines---
The main purpose of this flushing program is to remove sediment, air, and maintain residual chlorine in our system
to ensure dead end, and low usage mains continue to meet Safe Drinking Water Standards.
The flushing will be conducted in all four water systems zones….
Zone #1 Includes the areas in and around Meadowdale, Colfax, Morgan Hill, White Hall, NASA, MCDC
Industrial Park, Tri-County PSD, Valley Falls PSD, Rayford Acres and Little Creek PSD
Zone #2 Includes the areas in and around Bellview, East Side, Barrackville, Downtown, Ices Run PSD, and
Zone #3 Includes the areas in and around Country Club Road, Watson, West Side, Benton’s Ferry, and
Pleasant Valley Road----
Zone #4 Includes all of the 13 miles of water line to the City of Mannington, and Monumental.
This could possibly discolor the water in the surrounding areas. While work is being performed, there is also a
possibility that some customers may experience low pressure, cloudy water, or an interruption of service. If you
experience low water pressure, your water is discolored, or you service is interrupted please follow these instructions.
Do not drink the water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one (1) minute, and let it cool
before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for making ice, brushing teeth, washing
dishes, bathing, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
Customers may have low pressure or discolored water at times. The city will not be
responsible for any damage caused by discolored water ….
Customers with no water or other questions are to call the Fairmont Filtration plant
at 304 - 366 – 1461 Or Fairmont Utilities at 304-366-6231………
