Line flushing could continue next week

The flushing of water mains in the City of Mount Vernon will continue to Sunday and could extend into the next business week, according to City Manager Eddie Turner. The flushing is being done after 10 p.m. each night in various sections of the city. Conducting the process late at night should reduce the inconvenience to customers  and allow the treatment system to recover. See the June 21 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more details.
