Operation Spring Clean

Operation Spring Clean

"Operation Spring Clean," a preventive maintenance program to ensure that GUC customers continue to receive high quality water begins on March 22nd and will continue through June 19th. During the 13-week program, all 628 miles of GUC's water distribution system will be cleaned. The program involves opening fire hydrants and allowing them to flow freely for a short time.

"To minimize inconvenience to customers, cleaning will be conducted Sunday through Friday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.," said Randy Emory, GUC's Director of Water Resources. "Water service will not be interrupted because of Operation Spring Clean; however, we advise customers to avoid using water (if possible) when their lines are being cleaned. Although there is no health risk, the cleaning process involves flushing the pipes with high velocities of water. As a result, water may be discolored for a short period of time. GUC advises customers to avoid washing clothes until the water is clear."

If you experience any air or discolored water in their water lines as a result of Operation Spring Clean, GUC recommends turning on the cold water faucet in the bathtub and running the water for 5 to 10 minutes.
