Why Do We Flush the Pipes?

Flushing water mains improves water quality by removing sediment that can build up at the bottom of the water main over time. The sediment comes from internal corrosion of the water mains over many years. Flushing is often done twice a year between season.

Our Water Comes From Lake Auburn

Lake Auburn provides clean drinking water for Lewiston and Auburn. The quality of the water is maintained through watershed management efforts, education and outreach, Due to it’s high water quality and EPA filtration waiver, Lake Auburn is not filtered before it’s treated.
