Vacant Building Notice

April 30, 2020
Dear KWSC Member,
As you are aware, due to the pandemic of Covid-19, many businesses, schools and churches were forced to close their businesses for an extended amount of time. During that time, it’s possible that the water in your system sat and stagnated in your water lines. It is our strong recommendation that any time businesses close for long periods of time they refrain from reopening until all their water lines have been flushed from both hot and cold sides. Especially those that might be serving the general public. General recommendations for flushing are listed below:
For COLD water flushing: Open and let run (for several minutes) the furthest faucet/hose from the water meter.
For HOT water flushing: Open and let run (for several minutes) the hot water faucet nearest the water heater.

Thank You,
Leonard Leinfelder
General Manager
