Indiana American to flush water mains in Sullivan, Farmersburg

Indiana American Water will conduct water main flushing in the company’s Sullivan service area May 30 to June 6. Crews will be flushing the transmission main in the Sullivan area from 7 p.m. Friday, May 30, to 7 a.m. May 31. This will affect customers from Merom Station through New Lebanon and into the west edge of Sullivan on Washington Street.

Flushing of the distribution system within the boundaries of the town of Sullivan will begin on June 2 and continue through June 4 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. In Farmersburg, the company will be flushing water mains June 5 and June 6, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The company conducts the annual maintenance program to assure high-quality water service and to ensure fire hydrants are operational.

According to Terre Haute Superintendent Mitch Stauffer, “Water main and fire hydrant flushing is an important part of a regular maintenance program for water distribution systems. Indiana American Water consistently meets or exceeds all drinking water standards.”

Interruptions in water service are not anticipated as a result of the work. Customers may experience a slight drop in water pressure or temporary water discoloration while the program is under way. Customers should refrain from doing laundry during the time of day the flushing program is taking place in or near their neighborhood.

If tap water is discolored, Indiana American recommends allowing several cold-water faucets to run for a short time until the water runs clear. Using more than one faucet allows the water to clear quicker.

Customers who have questions regarding hydrant flushing may call the Customer Service Center at 800-492-8373.

The water main flushing will be performed by Indiana American Water crews. They will be working out of trucks identified with the company logo. All employees will also have photo ID badges.
