Union Gap Residents Advised to Monitor Drinking Water
UNION GAP, Wash. -- Starting Monday, the City of Union Gap will be flushing water through its hydrants to remove sediments from the water mains. The sediments are non-toxic, but the process could cause some discoloration in the city's drinking water.
The process is expected to last until May 30th. Officials say they will attempt to minimize the impact by flushing the hydrants from 11:00 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. each day.
Union Gap residents are advised not to do laundry, use the dishwasher, or use a water purifier if their tap water is discolored. Officials say it is a good idea to keep some clean water on-hand.
