Onancock water customers may notice discolored water April 15 and 16. The condition will be the result of a hydrant flush scheduled on those days.

According to a statement released by the Town of Onancock:

  • “We conduct this hydrant flush to remove any sediment or deposits that settle in the lines, ensuring high water quality, and checking the water pressure and flow.
  • Your water may be discolored during the process. It will clear up shortly after the flushing is complete. After the flushing is complete, run your water until it is clear.
  • Please plan for discolored water when doing laundry.
  • The discolored water results from settlements of minerals like iron and manganese, these minerals are not harmful in small amounts and the water is safe from a microbiological standpoint.”
