(La Porte, IN) - Fire Hydrant flushing throughout La Porte will start Sunday. Water Department workers will be flushing water from hydrants Sunday through Friday between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. for the next several weeks.
Flushing out the hydrants helps maintain the city’s water infrastructure and helps improve overall water quality.
Discolored or rusty water may occur in some areas as a result of the hydrant flushing. Though the water is safe to drink, discolored water in washing machines may affect clothing. If you are doing laundry, please check the water first to prevent staining clothes. If clothes do become stained, avoid drying and contact the Water Department for a rust removing solution.
Contact the Water Deptarment at 219-326-9540 with any questions.
