System-wide water line flushing begins this week
Beginning this week, the City and Borough of Juneau Water Utility will begin flushing the water distribution system. Work is scheduled to begin downtown, working north to the hospital, crossing over to Douglas, then on to the Lemon Creek area, proceeding to the Valley, and then on out to the Tee Harbor area. This work will continue over the next few months.
Work will occur between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and will be tentatively completed by June 30.
Customers may encounter water discoloration or minor disruptions in service. To clear the discoloration, first wait until the work crew leaves the area, then run the cold water tap (preferably in your bathtub) until the water runs clear.
Please watch for crews working in the roadway, use caution, and obey traffic controls. CBJ apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
