The City of Independence will begin flushing fire hydrants next Monday, April 8th and will continue for approximately six weeks. If you notice cloudy water, it means air is in the line. Let the water run for a few minutes to clear it. And same if the water is discolored – just let the water run a few minutes. Low pressure on any faucet usually means the screen needs cleaning, but remember low pressure is normal when city workers are flushing the fire hydrants in your area, and typically lasts about 20 minutes. If problems continue or if you have questions, call City Hall at 620-332-2500.
