The Mt. Zion Pubic Works Department will be conducting hydrant flushing throughout the town starting today, August 30, and continuing through the end of the week. As a result of the line flushing process, residents in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of their water. This discoloration consists primarily of harmless silt and air and does not affect the safety of the water. If you experience discoloration in you water after crews have been flushing in your neighborhood, clear the pipes in your home by running all water faucets for a few minutes.
