The Town of Blowing Rock is planning the second of its two semi-annual flushing of the water lines to take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, November 8, 9 and 10. This important preventive maintenance routine will help ensure water system customers have sustained levels of high water quality by removing sediment and deposits from the more stagnant areas of the system.
Some customers may briefly experience a temporary slight discoloration of water in the immediate vicinity of the flushing activity. If this happens in your area, please run your cold-water faucet to flush out the service line to your property. For rare but occasional extended discoloration please contact Town Hall at (828) 295-5200 with your service location and we will work to clear up any issues. Thanks so much for your understanding and support through this necessary maintenance process.
Our spring 2017 process is planned for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday May 2, 3 and 4 of 2017 and our fall 2017 process is planned for November 7, 8 and 9 of 2017. These 2017 dates will also be printed in the Blowing Rock Community Calendar available at Town Hall starting in December of 2016.
In our effort to inform our customers so they can plan accordingly, we will be using our CodeRED automated notification system on Tuesday November 1. For those customers and citizens who have not yet registered for this free service, they may do so through the CodeRED link on the upper left side of our website at www.townofblowingrock.com. CodeRED messages may be received by telephone, email, text, or all three according to the customer’s selected preference.
