Cottage Grove residents will be feeling 'flushed' in November

City workers flushed the water distribution system at the corner of S. 14 Street and E. Quincy Avenue on Oct. 24 to clear build-up of mineral deposits in the piping. Minerals like iron and manganese naturally accumulate in the system and, though still safe to drink, can cause a yellow tint to appear in residents’ tap water. The city will conduct flushes on more than 400 hydrants through the city, a process that is expected to take about three weeks from Nov. 4 to 25. Residents will receive notices on their water bills when flushes are coming to their neighborhood.
