Mike’s Leader Bikes

(Mankato, MN) – The city of Mankato will start its annual fall flushing of water mains Sunday night and you’ll want to avoid doing laundry when it’s happening in your neighborhood.

During the flushing, residents are advised to avoid or limit water usage. Officials say the water is safe to drink, but may cause staining and it’s best to allow at least one hour after the flushing for the water to clear.

Flushing hours are scheduled from 8:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily from September 30th to October 5th.
