ELKHART, Ind -- Elkhart Public Utilities will begin a daily spring water main flushing starting on May 2nd at 6:00 a.m. through May 17th at 3:00 p.m.
The utility company warns residents that on the day when flushing is scheduled for their area, drains should be plugged in flood prone areas.

It is also worth noting that some discoloration might occur in areas not on schedule for that particular day.
Citizens are being advised to use extra caution when driving through flushing areas, as pressures will be reduced.
