Twice a year the Ellsworth Water Department flushes its water lines. October 19th until October 26th 2018 will be the next time this is scheduled to be done. This process is a semiannual event, which takes place each spring and fall. The flushing is designed to clean the lines which prevents possible problems in the future. During the flushing, residents along the routes may experience dirty or yellow water, low water flow or low pressure. This is both expected and temporary but should subside soon after the flushing is complete. Please contact the Ellsworth Water Department at 667-8632 with any questions.
