Albany Public Works to conduct seasonal


Monday October 16th through Friday, October 20th

    Beginning Monday, October 16th through Friday, the 20th  of October, the Albany Public Works Department will be performing routine flushing of the City Water System and Fire Hydrants.

    This is part of a regularly scheduled maintenance program that removes rust, manganese deposits and sediment from the City’s water lines.

    When hydrant flushing is being performed in your neighborhood you may experience rusty water and discoloration along with pressure fluctuation.

    Below are some precautions you may take:

• When you notice flushing is occurring in your neighborhood, please check your water coming from your faucet before using your washing machine. You may need to run it for a bit until it runs clear.

• If by accident you do wash a load and rusty looking streaks appear on your laundry, don’t use bleach as this will set the stains permanently.  A product called “Iron Out” has been shown to be successful in removing iron stains from fabric.

    If you have any questions, please call Albany’s Public Works Supervisor, Joe Mergen at 320.980.2990.
