Chaffee residents may see less sediment stirred up in their water than usual after the city’s biannual fire hydrant flush. Beginning Monday, the two-day process will remove mineral sediment built up in pipes, improve water quality and maintain valves and hydrants within the city. City administrator Lee Horton says that in the past, there have been issues with discoloration in the water, but since the city recently upgraded its lines, it shouldn’t be too disruptive. The $6.2 million water-system project provided cleaner water to 1,136 customers via new water lines, additional fire hydrants and new meters for each home in Chaffee. Run the water until it’s clean. It may be discolored, but it’s still safe to drink, but it is not advised. For more information about the hydrant flushing, call city hall at 573-887-3558.
