&n......bsp; Water customers in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of their water . If this takes place , customers are advised to clear the pipes in their home or business by running all the water faucets for a few minutes , and to postpone laundry as the discolored water can stain clothes . This discoloration usually lasts no more than a few hours , affecting only the appearance of the water , not the taste or quality . If discoloration lasts more than 24 hours , contact the Utilities Service Center at 501 - 321 - 6200 .
During hydrant maintenance and testing , water lines are flushed in order to test hydrant flow and water pressure levels for fire control purposes . The process also helps maintain the integrity of the City’s water distribution system , flushing out sediment or deposits that may naturally occur over time .
