Don’t Worry, That Tap Water Is Still Good to Drink!
If your tap water in Kennewick looks and tastes a little different over the next few days, don't worry - it's OK to drink.
The City Of Kennewick is flushing water lines on Columbia Drive along Breech Street and Benton Street. Here are some details on what to expect with the water flushing -
During the process, customers may experience a temporary drop in water pressure and/or discolored water. Discolored water does NOT pose a health hazard. The color is from naturally occurring minerals in the water. If customers experience discolored water after the crews have finished flushing the lines, it is recommended to run cold water through the tap for approximately 10-15 minutes.
