The Rob-call text and call reminders are set up to go out at 6:30 tonight for flushing on Wednesday and Thursday. If you do not get the call or text and would like to, please email the office at email@example.com and make sure you do not have SMS messaging blocked on your phone.
For many of us this is a repeat reminder but there has been a lot of transition in the neighborhood lately. Also, changing from a 1 day to a 2 day flush, hopefully all will take an opportunity to review the procedure and do your part.
Rolling Hills-Glencairn water main lines will be flushed from 8am-5pm on Wednesday & Thursday April 20 & 21, 2022. A full system flush consists of closing and opening main water valves strategically throughout the community to run water through all the main lines and out the fire hydrants. This procedure cleans out all the water lines of sediment that builds up over time.
DO NOT USE ANY WATER during the flush. You may have water in your home sporadically throughout the day but using it will delay the restoration of supply to everyone. If you use water during the flush, stirred up sediment may be pulled into your house. At 5pm each day, when the flush is complete for the day, we suggest you turn on an outside hose bib and let it run about 10 minutes. You are actually participating in the flush by finishing off the line to your residence.
Since this is a two day flush. It is recommend to run your outside hose at 5pm on both days. Flushing will begin about 8am and continues until 5pm. You can use water both evenings after running your outside faucets as usual. No further calls or texts will be sent upon completion. King Water will stop flushing before 5pm in order to allow the reservoirs to partially refill prior to community use.
If the flush is NOT complete with in the 2 day scheduled time period. It will continue on to a third day (Friday) and the same procedures would be followed at your own residences.
