Why is CCWD opening the valves?
Water leaving the treatment plant is clean and safe, but may pick up tastes, colors, or odors as it travels through distribution system pipes on its way to customers. Opening the valves improves water quality at the customer tap and uncovers potential problems. Opening valves and hydrants is the only way to clean the pipelines, the brief, but high, flow of water scours the pipes.
