The Island City Public Works Department will once again conduct the Spring Fire Hydrant testing and maintenance. This will begin April 11, 2016. Because of the additional time required to perform this testing, the project may extend thru April 22, 2016. This is necessary to ensure adequate water volume and pressure for fire suppression, to ensure fire hydrants are functioning properly, to rid the city’s water system of accumulations of sediment, and to detect any potential problems with the water system.
If you should detect any discoloration or sediment, let an outside faucet or a cold-water bathtub faucet run until the discoloration clears.
When clearing your lines, it is a good idea to remove aerators from your faucets prior to running the water to prevent them from clogging and reducing water pressure.
PLEASE check for water discoloration prior to washing clothes!!
The entire system will be flushed and the discoloration should only last a short time. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but hydrant flushing must be performed twice a year. If at any time you detect a problem with water quality, please contact the City Office at 541.963.5017

There will be trucks entering the well to fill their tanks. The City would like to remain as helpful as possible to all of the cities in our region. PLEASE NOTE that the water from this well is not water that services the residents of Island City. This well is non-potable water, as it has higher levels of nitrates in the water.
