Water Systems Flushing

Everyone expects their water to be clear and good tasting. So, in order to keep your water that way, we, at the City of Emmett will be conducting our Water Systems Flushing and Water Valve Exercising Programs.

Our purpose is to remove sediments which naturally build up in the water lines.

You may notice a drop in water pressure, daily, from May 3rd to the 14th, 2021. You may also notice some sediment or slight discoloration of your water. If you do, let your water run hard for a few minutes to clear the lines to your home.

If, after attempting to clear your lines, you still notice a problem, with your water, give us a call at 208-365-9569 opt 7.

We'll be happy to clear things up!
