Pennsylvania American Water to Flush System on Jan. 29

Pennsylvania American Water will begin routine flushing its water distribution system near campus on Wednesday, Jan. 29 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

Streets impacted include South River, South Franklin, Market, Northampton and South.

Flushing allows Pennsylvania American Water to monitor and maintain fire hydrants and ensures that we continue to receive high quality water service. When crews are working in the area, you may notice reduced pressure or discolored water.

If your water is discolored, wait until it runs clear before using. This should typically take only a few minutes.
