Water mains in Faribault will be flushed the week of Sept. 22-25, on four separate nights, weather pending.

Water mains are routinely flushed to clean the distribution system. Residents are advised to avoid or limit water usage during the flushing period and check for discoloration prior to using water for laundry purposes.
