Sunnyside water pipes to be flushed on Wednesday

The city of Sunnyside will be flushing the city's water system on Wednesday, Oct. 3, from midnight until 10 a.m.

City crews will be using fire hydrants to flush out iron and manganese deposits, which can make the city water appear "rusty" or dirty. The crews will also be testing the hydrant flows at the same time.

Citizens may notice some temporary discoloration of water due to turbidity.

The water department suggests minimizing water usage during the testing period and running a home's water for 10 minutes first thing in the morning to eliminate any deposits which may be in the residence's plumbing system.

Call the public works office at 509-837-5206 with questions or for more information.
