Some City of Binghamton residents may be experienced discolored water for the next few days.

The City’s Water Distribution Department is doing hydrant flushing and testing.  The work is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Residents should check their cold water supply before using any water. It may be necessary to run the cold water to clear the service.

Hydrant flushing and testing is done in the spring and fall and ensures the water lines are clear and fully functional, not only for residential and business uses but also for fire protection and other services.
