DOW Water Reminder

The Department of Water (DOW) reminds resort properties and large commercial facilities to conduct a flushing of their plumbing fixtures on property at least once a week and prior to reopening for business. The flushing protocol is also recommended to schools and businesses that have significantly reduced the water demand within their systems during COVID-19 related closures or extended property vacancies. The flushing process will help to prevent stagnation, clear out existing sediment and help to ensure chlorine residuals (which checks microbial growth) are maintained within their facilities.
