Hydrant flushing today in LaBelle

STEUBENVILLE — Crews will be flushing hydrants in the LaBelle water service area through 5 p.m. today.

The hydrant flushing, part of the city’s valve replacement project, will impact Labelle for the remainder of the week, Water Superintendent Jim Jenkins said.

Residents who experience water quality issues, including low pressure, discoloration and even temporary loss of water, should contact the filtration plant at (740) 283-6041.

Residents are asked to avoid washing white clothes while the flushing is in progress, he said, and in the event of discoloration, they should run cold water only to clear the lines.

Crews will start with Pershing and Roosevelt avenues, then work their way south through the hilltop from University Boulevard to Washington Street.
