The Penn Yan Municipal Utilities water crew will be flushing the village hydrants the week of April 25. The flushing is done in order to thoroughly clean the village’s water delivery system.

This flushing of the hydrants can cause cloudy water. Village officials say that although the water will still be safe to drink, residents may wish to purchase bottled water for consumption. It is also advised that they  run their faucets to clear any cloudy water that may have collected in their service line during the flushing process.

Low water pressure may occur while the flushing is underway. This process is required by the New York State Department of Health to clean sediment out of the system.
