The Stonington Water Company will be flushing its fire hydrants June 3, 2015, and June 4, 2015. During this time period, you may notice intermittent pressure fluctuations and occasional discoloration of the tap water. The discoloration caused by the flushing process is due to the presence of iron. It is recommended that you run your cold water for a short period of time following flushing on your street to remove this discoloration. Do not use chlorine bleach products during this time period as it may react with the iron compounds and stain your clothing. Call the Stonington Water Company at 367-2351 x15 if you have any questions.
