Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - From April 7 through April 11 water crews will continue to flush hydrants in neighborhoods east of Interstate 25. Expect crews in the following locations:

North - Interstate 25 to Powderhouse Boulevard.
Central - Interstate 25 to Evans Avenue.
South – Parsley Boulevard to Walterscheid Boulevard.

Due to the hydrant flushing, homes and businesses in these areas may temporarily experience discolored water. While the discolored water is not at Cheyenne’s usual standard of water quality, it continues to be safe.

Customers experiencing rusty or discolored water should run cold water from a faucet or outside hose to clear the water. If the water doesn’t clear after about 15 minutes, call the BOPU at 637-6471.

While water crews are working in nearby neighborhoods, customers should watch for discolored water and avoid using hot water or doing laundry if the water is discolored. This will help keep sediment from being drawn into the water heater or onto clothes. When the water flows clear again, normal water use may resume.
