The Iowa City Water Division will begin to open and flush water hydrants this month to remove sediment and clean water-distribution pipes.

According to a city press release, hydrants will also be checked for any repairs that might be necessary.

As part of the process, officials said there may be temporary water discoloration; if this happens, let the water run until it clears.

The hydrant flushing should be completed by mid-June. More than 3,200 hydrants are checked and serviced each year in the spring and fall.
