Blowing Rock Semi-Annual Water System Flushing Today

PUBLIC NOTICE: November 3, 2014. BLOWING ROCK, NC — The Town of Blowing Rock is planning the second of its two semi-annual flushing of the water lines to take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday,November 4, 5 and 6.

This important preventive maintenance routine will help ensure our system customers have sustained levels of high water quality by removing sediment and deposits from the more stagnant areas of the system. Some customers may briefly experience a temporary slight discoloration of water in the immediate vicinity of the flushing activity. If this happens in your area, please run your cold-water faucet to flush out the service line to your property. For rare but occasional extended discoloration please contact Town Hall at (828) 295-5200 with your service location and we will work to clear up any issues.

Thanks so much for your understanding and support through this necessary maintenance process. Our spring 2014 water line flushing occurred back in May and our spring 2015 process is currently planned to take place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday May 5, 6 and 7 with our fall 2015 process taking place November 3, 4 and 5. These 2015 dates will be printed in the Blowing Rock Community Calendar that will be available later this fall as a helpful reminder. In our effort to inform our customers so they can plan accordingly, we will be using our CodeRED automated notification system on Thursday October 23rd and again on Monday November 3rd as a reminder.

For those customers and citizens and customers who have not yet registered for this free service, they may do so through the CodeRED link on our website at www.townofblowingrock.com Messages may be received by telephone, email, text, or all three according to the customer’s selected preference.

Scott Fogleman, Town Manager, (828) 295-5200, manager@townofblowingrock.com
