Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District announced that routine line flushing will take place in Canyon Lake today, July 9. This routine flushing ensures that EVMWD is delivering safe and high-quality household water that meets California’s strict standards.
Regular water flushing is required by the State Water Resources Control Board. In addition, it’s an important part of EVMWDs water maintenance system as it controls bacteria, such as biofilm growth that can occur when water in a pipeline has lower demand; removes many deposits, sediment and other materials that can affect taste and odor; reduces corrosion through scouring the inside of the water pipeline; and ensures that hydrants and valves are working properly in an emergency.
The water flushing process forces water through the water main at a high speed. This water is then discharged through hydrants. Water that is flushed through the pipelines travels down into neighborhood gutters and eventually makes its way back to Canyon Lake one of EVMWDs water storage areas for use at a later time.
Customers may notice a temporary reduction in water quality and water pressure in their homes while flushing is in process on their street. When hydrant flushing occurs, customers may observe slightly discolored water coming from their faucets. According to EVMWD, this discoloring is temporary and only affects the appearance of water; it does not cause a health or safety risk.
If water is discolored after water flushing, EVMWD suggests running cold tap water for a few minutes until the water becomes clear. Customers who experience discoloration for a prolonged time or experience a significant loss of water pressure following hydrant flushing should contact EVMWDs Operations Department for assistance at 951-674-3146, ext. 8305.
