As discoloration to water is likely to appear, we would appreciate any and all radio and television announcements and newspaper articles so as to alert the water users and the traveling public.  In particular, we urge the water users to check their cold water for discoloration prior to drawing water for cooking and for use in automatic washers and dishwashers.  If discoloration is found, the water user is advised to discontinue use until water clears. Customers can call our automated phone system to get a daily update on streets that are to be flushed by dialing 330-375-2554, selecting Frequently Asked Questions and following the prompts.   Water customers can also log on to and select News Releases to get the latest hydrant flushing updates.  Should the water user have any questions or need assistance, they are advised to call 330-375-2420.
