Water system flushing scheduled for area #3

On Friday, April 12, 2019, the City of Longview utility crews will be flushing water mains in the
area between 15th Avenue and the Cowlitz River from Ocean Beach Highway to California Way
and Baltimore Street. Work will begin at 6:30 a.m. and end by 4:30 p.m. Advisory signs will be
posted in the area.

Flushing may stir up sediment that can enter residential plumbing. Residents should refrain from
using water while flushing is occurring. After flushing, it is recommended that residents run
water through an outside hose bib or in a bathtub, for a short time prior to consuming water or
washing clothes.
