Fire hydrant flushing to begin
Shipshewana utility crews will be flushing fire hydrants on Mondays and Thursdays beginning this Monday through June. There may be some temporary discoloration of residents’ water when crews are flushing the hydrants in neighborhoods. The water is safe to drink and use, town officials said, but it may cause some discoloration to white laundry.
Town officials recommend not washing white laundry if residents see hydrants being flushed in their neighborhoods.
Call Town Hall at 260-768-4743 for more information.
