JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown Board of Public Utilities (BPU) Water Division announces that fall flushing of water mains will begin on the first Saturday night of October and continue throughout the BPU water system through Thursday, October 17, weather-permitting.
Fall flushing is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. Saturday, October 5, in the Village of Falconer, and take place all Saturday night into Sunday until the entire village of Falconer is flushed. When Falconer is flushed, there may be discolored water on the north side of Jamestown around the Buffalo Street area on Sunday.
Following the Falconer flush, crews then will move into the northeast section of Jamestown (near JCC and the Lutheran) at 8 p.m. Sunday, October 6.
Flushing will proceed for two weeks throughout the rest of the BPU water system nightly from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m., Sundays through Thursdays, until the process is finished.
