Town of Orleans flushing hydrants

ORLEANS – The Orleans Town Water Department is in the process of flushing hydrants this week.

This may cause a temporary discoloration of the water.

The water is safe for drinking but may discolor clothes washed in it. Residents should flush their systems by running fixtures,  including the washing machine, etc. until the water clears.

The town regrets any inconvenience this process may cause, and thanks residents for their patience and cooperation.

Questions may be directed to the Orleans Town Offices, 812-865-2539.
