Summer Newsletter

HYDRANT FLUSHING NOTICE

The Star Prairie Utilities will conduct its Fire Hydrant Flushing beginning on July 22nd and July 23rd, 2020.  This notice is to inform our customers that hydrant flushing may cause discolored or “rusty” looking water. The discolored water is caused by naturally occurring iron minerals that are disturbed during the flushing process. If mineral particles are detected (that may affect laundry operations) cold water should be run to clear out household water lines. If the problem persists, residents should contact Star Prairie Utilities at (715) 531-7033.

This service is for village residents only and no foot traffic is allowed. Access road has a 15 MPH limit.
