BOPU to Flush Raw Water Mains

6-2, 2016

Starting today and continuing into next week, the City of Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities (BOPU) water crews will be flushing the raw water mains from Crystal Reservoir to the Sherard Water Treatment Plant. These 30 and 36 inch pipelines that feed raw water to the Sherard Water Treatment Plant periodically need to be flushed to remove natural sediment build-up. Residents should not notice a difference in their drinking water since flushing occurs prior to treating, disinfecting and distributing Cheyenne’s drinking water.

Residents in the area between Crystal Reservoir and the Sherard Water Treatment Plant off Happy Jack Road may notice water from the blow off valves through next week.
