ROSEBURG, Ore. - Beginning Monday, March 5 and continuing through Friday, March 16, crews with Douglas County Fire District No.2 will be flushing and maintaining fire hydrants from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The department said water discoloration could happen depending on how bad the sediment on water mains is, and how long the hydrant has to flow. They said regardless of how it looks, the water is safe to drink, and let it run until it's clear. If water becomes unsafe to drink, a boil alert will be issued.
Affected communities include Dixonville, Green, Melrose, Winchester, Wilbur, Garden Valley, Umpqua, Calapooia, and unincorporated areas of the City of Roseburg.
If you have any questions or more information, contact Douglas County Fire District No.2 at 541-673-5503 or visit www.dcfd.org.
