Hydrant Flushing
Waconia Utilities Department began the process of flushing the water system utilizing fire hydrants, starting the week of April 8.
Flushing hydrants will continue for approximately one month. This routine maintenance can affect water clarity causing the water to be widely varied in color. To prevent staining of laundry, water quality should be checked.
For a daily schedule, refer to www.waconia.org or call (952) 442-1234, option 1. Questions can be directed to Doug Bode, Public Utilities Supervisor, at (952) 442-2615.
