The Chesterfield County Department of Utilities advises residents in the southern part of the county that the department will begin flushing water lines on Sunday, March 25. Flushing will take place in the portion of the system that lies generally south of Route 360 to Colonial Heights, Enon and the Matoaca-Ettrick area.
Flushing will take place Sunday night through Thursday night, from 9 p.m. until
6 a.m. each week through Friday, April 13. The flushing process involves systematically opening fire hydrants and creating higher-than-normal flows that will clean the interior of water mains. The flushing program is just one way the county ensures high-quality drinking water for its customers. During the hours of scheduled flushing, customers may experience discolored water, low pressure and, in a few instances, short periods of no water.
