City Hydrant Flushing - May 3, 2021 - May 16, 2021

The City of Maroa will be flushing fire hydrants within the city the week beginning May 3, 2021 through May 16, 2021, weather permitting.  If they are not able to get to all the hydrants, they will get some in all areas of town.  During this time water customers may experience cloudy/discolored water.  While flushing occurs in your neighborhood, we recommend utility water customer’s refrain from doing laundry until the water clears up.  This would also be the optimum time for utility water customers to repair or replace aerators and screens in all your water faucets.  We appreciate our customer’s cooperation during this time and apologize for any inconvenience it may cause.  For any questions or concerns please contact Mike Hoffman, Superintendent at 217-519-2102.
