Water Main Flushing

2016 Water Main Flushing

The City of St. James Water Department will be flushing water mains from March 28 through April 8th.

The schedule is to flush the south side (south of the railroad tracks) starting on Sunday, March 27th at 11:00 pm and ending on Friday April 1st. Then the north side (north of the railroad tracks) of town starting on Monday April 4 and ending on April 8th.

Generally water service is maintained and outages are not expected during the flushing, however, water may appear rusty or discolored during the flushing. This water is safe to drink, but should not be used for laundry as staining could occur.
