The Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities will continue to flush hydrants in neighborhoods east of Ridge Road from June 9 through June 13.

Crews will be working in the following locations:

North of U.S. Highway 30: Between Ridge Road and Van Buren Avenue.
South of U.S. Highway 30: Between North College Drive and Taft Avenue

BOPU spokesman Clint Bassett says due to the hydrant flushing, homes and businesses in these areas may temporarily experience discolored water. While the discolored water is not Cheyenne’s usual quality, it continues to be safe.

Customers experiencing rusty or discolored water should run cold water from a faucet or outside hose to clear the water. If the water doesn’t clear after about 15 minutes, call the BOPU at 637-6471.

While water crews are working in nearby neighborhoods, customers should watch for discolored water and avoid using hot water or doing laundry if the water is discolored. This will help keep sediment from being drawn into the water heater or onto clothes. When the water flows clear again, normal water use may resume.
