In preparation for Pierre’s new drinking water, the city will flush its water lines to clean out deposits that have settled in the lines.

The flushing process can disturb deposits and sediments in the pipelines. This can cause temporary water discoloration.
The discolored water is safe for drinking and bathing.
To clear discolored water, run cold water, preferably through an outside spigot, until the water runs clear.
A map from the Drinking Water Treatment Facility webpage outlines the tentative flushing schedule. However, the schedule remains fluid.
To recieve a neighborhood-specific alert, visit public.alertsense.com. Through this system, notices will be sent directly to your cell phone or email address.
Household filters, water softeners, dishwashers and washing machines shouldn’t be used until /unless the water runs clear.
The city does not anticipate the flushing process will cause water service disruptions.
If faulty public infrastructure is found during the flushing process, the infrastructure will be fixed. These fixes may cause disruptions to service. Impacted parties will recieve separate notification in such instances
