Batesville Water Utility Water Main Flushing Scheduled

Media Release
Batesville Water Utility
Annual Water main Flushing
April 18th & 19th, 2019
The Batesville Water Utility wishes to notify its customers that
the Utility will be flushing the water mains on Thursday April
18th, and Friday April 19th. This flushing can significantly
lower the water pressure in the immediate area. The flushing is
done to remove sediment from the mains and improve the water
quality, which is the Utilities’ primary concern. During the
Flushing the sediment in the pipes breaks loose from the walls of
the water pipe and can cause a dark color in the water. This
sediment can contain iron and manganese and can stain clothing
during washing and makes the water unsightly to drink. The most
noticeable problem most customers will experience will be the
fluctuations in their water pressure.
Questions concerning the flushing or problems experienced during
this work should be directed to: During business hours, Eric
Laker, Batesville Water Utility, Phone 812-934-3811, Before
business hours, call 812-212-8532.
