The Penn Yan Municipal Utilities Water Crew will be flushing the village hydrants next week. The flushing is done to clean the village’s water delivery system and can cause cloudy water. Although the water will still be safe to drink, residents may wish to purchase bottled water for consumption.

Residents are advised to run faucets to clear any cloudy water that may have collected in their service line. Low water pressure may also occur during the flushing, which  is required by the New York State Department of Health to clean sediment out of the system.
