T.U.D. To Initiate Spring Flushing Process

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne Utilities District will initiate its 2009 annual water distribution systems flushing process February 2.

Immediate areas to be affected through February 13 include Peaceful Pines, Sugar Pine, Comstock, Tuolumne, Lakewood and Brentwood Park.

A schedule of other areas will be announced in the next couple of weeks and posted at T.U.D.

Residents are advised to not be alarmed if observing substantial volumnes of water flowing in drainages or alongside the road. In addition customers may experience fluctuations in service pressure.

While flushing is occuring customers should attempt to limit water use in order to not draw this water into household plumbing. If you have cloudy water after the water lines have been flushed turn on an outside water bibb in order to flush the service line where the water enters the residence.
