The City of Blaine Water Division started flushing the City's water distribution system. This is accomplished by opening the hydrants along the system (starting at the well fields) to move fresh water throughout the distribution system. The purpose of flushing the system is to remove any grit and debris in order to improve water quality though the system. Flushing will occur between 8:00 am - 4:00 pm. Please be aware that flushing the water lines causes temporary water discoloration and you are advised not to run hot water or wash clothes during these times. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Blaine Public Works Department at (360) 332-8820.
