Property owner’s responsibility: Water service lines are owned and maintained by the property owner…
Delano Municipal Utility crews flush water hydrants remove rust and sediments from the water lines. You may notice a drop in water pressure during these times. It is temporary and will return to normal in a short period of time. Unfortunately the flushing procedure may also knock loose rust sediments in your water lines, this is only temporary and your water will clear soon after the flushing is complete. Please watch for excess rust in your water during this time and for a few days following the flushing.
The Delano Municipal Utility thanks you in advance for your patience and understanding during this time.
