Fire Hydrant Flushing Scheduled

The Mishawaka Utilities Water Division has begun its semi-annual fire hydrant flushing program. Periodic flushing is necessary to purge the water distribution system of iron and manganese deposits that may have settled in the water mains over a long period of time. Although not harmful, these residues can discolor the water and lead to discolored laundry or stained plumbing fixtures. Flushing purges the water distribution system of these residues and thus enhances the esthetic qualities of the potable water provided by the City, and also serves to help verify that fire hydrants and associated valves operate properly.

Mishawaka Parks & Recreation has announced the schedule for their "Rockin' by the River" Summer Day Camps.
