(La Vergne, Tenn.) Inframark will begin unidirectional flushing in La Vergne starting June 21. Unidirectional flushing is an annual practice by the water treatment plant that is used to improve and maintain high-quality drinking water.
Sediments and mineral deposits in the pipes can discolor drinking water. The high-speed water flows used in unidirectional flushing is an efficient and cost-effective way to remove sediments and deposits from the pipes and prevent potential water quality issues.
While crews have hydrants open residents may notice water running down the road to a nearby storm drain and the water may be very cloudy or discolored. This is normal and will reverse itself after the flushing is complete.
If you have any questions or need to report concerns, please call the water plant at 615-793-6536.
