MAINTENANCE OF RECLAIMED WATER SYSTEM SCHEDULED FOR EARLY THURSDAY MORNING
ST. PETERSBURG, FL (October 26, 2016) – Maintenance flushing of the city’s reclaimed water system via fire hydrants will begin at 2 a.m. on Thursday, October 27, along Fifth Ave. S, and Poinsettia Ave. between 62nd St. S. and 74th St. S. Residents may notice water in the streets being directed into storm drains.
Periodic flushing of a water system using fire hydrants is a normal permitted operating procedure for both potable and reclaimed systems to help maintain water quality.
Technicians will be working to maintain adequate pressures in the entire system although customers may experience intermittent reclaimed water pressure near the affected area. A number of fire hydrants are in the service area and will be used for this operation.
