St. Cloud city residents are invited to attend a community meeting to learn more about the City’s flushing program — but it’s not as bad as it sounds.

In an attempt to eliminate any possible water color issues throughout the water distribution system, crews will flush certain hydrants along the city’s larger water mains. The high-pressure flushing will remove sediment or minerals from the pipes.

Crews will work weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., when residents affected may notice a drop in water pressure, which will go away shortly after flushing stops.

The public meeting, hosted by the Environmental Utilities Department, will be held in the Cypress Room at the St. Cloud Community Center (3001 17th St.), on Oct. 16 at 6 p.m. Staff will be on hand to answer any questions and concerns.
