​Water line and hot water heater maintenance


The Utility department recommends that residents that leave their home vacant for several months or are not frequenting their residence regularly, to flush their water lines upon their return for ten to fifteen minutes before using the water.

Hot water heaters are frequently turned down when leaving and run the risk for legionella bacteria in the hot water heater.  The following websites provide information about legionella bacteria and regular hot water heater maintenance.
