Village valve maintenance beginning June 19

Ada's Public Works Department will be performing routine maintenance on water distribution valves the week of June 19, 2023 beginning on the North side of the Village.

Hydrant flushing begins June 5

Announcement from the Village of Ada:

As part of our annual water maintenance program, Public Works employees will be flushing fire hydrants starting June 5, 2023 on the North Side of Ada between the hours of 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Because water mains are typically looped together, you may notice that your service pressure is affected even if hydrants are being flushed several blocks away.

During the flushing process, there may be a slight discoloration of the water caused by sediment or rust being flushed from the water mains. If you do experience discoloration in your water service, please don't be alarmed. Your water will clear up once it is run for a short time. Should you experience rusty colored water, we suggest you run the cold water from the faucet nearest to the water meter (laundry tub, outside faucet) to flush the service, We suggest that on days we flush, you may not want to do laundry during the hours listed above. Possible discoloration in the water can stain light colored clothing.

Please note that your water is safe for all other uses and that slightly higher amounts of chlorine are added to the system during maintenance.
