LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Lincoln Transportation and Utilities ask northeast Lincoln residents to flush their water lines before use through Thursday.

The area in the boundaries of N. 27th and N. 70th St. and Fletcher Ave. and Holdrege St. will need to flush their water lines.

LTU caused some water to be discolored while conducting maintenance on their water system in northeast Lincoln.

LTU asks anyone experiencing discolored water to flush the cold water first and avoid using any hot water until the cold water is clear

“The discoloration is the result of iron and manganese sediments that can become dislodged from pipes and reservoirs during maintenance procedures,” said Donna Garden, Assistant Director of Utilities.

Contact Lincoln Water System at 402-441-7571 for more information.
