Berea Municipal Utilities will be conducting system wide flushing of our water lines over the next 2 weeks. This process is performed once or twice per year in order to ensure optimum water quality and fire protection testing as required by the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Cabinet of Kentucky Division of Water.
The flushing of lines also serves the purpose of removing sediment and mineral deposits that settle inside water mains over time. If you notice a slight discoloration in your water, turn on a cold water tap at your home—preferably an outside faucet, to full flow for a few minutes until the water is clear. If the problem persists, contact Berea Municipal Utilities at (859) 986-4391 for assistance.
