Neighborhood News Flash

Several announcements from the City today:

Brown Water: In an effort to update the City’s hydraulic model for its water system Water Department crews will conduct a water main flow test and system assessment on Thursday, July 8, and Friday, July 9, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The test involves opening water hydrants at about a dozen locations throughout the City and checking water pressure and volume at nearby hydrants. When the hydrants are opened the water clears sediment and dislodges small amounts of corrosive material from the pipes, so water customers in the flushing areas may see some discoloration in their water during testing.
Customers seeing discolored water are advised to run the cold water tap until the water runs clear. The water is safe to drink once it is clear. Customers are further advised to avoid washing clothes or running hot water until the cold water is clear.
If there is a need to contact the City regarding this matter, please call 503-786-7600.
The City of Milwaukie appreciates its residents' patience and understanding during testing.
