The City of Akron Water Distribution Division will be conducting a water main flushing program within the City of Fairlawn to help maintain the water quality and to increase and evaluate the amount of water available for firefighting purposes.
As discoloration to water is likely to appear, we urge water users to check your cold water for discoloration prior to drawing water for cooking and for use in automatic washers and dishwashers. If discoloration is found, you are advised to discontinue use until the water clears. Residents can call the City of Akron Water Distribution Division at 330-375-2420. Residents can also call their automated phone system to get a daily update on streets that are to be flushed by dialing 330-375-2554 and selecting "Frequently Asked Questions" and follow the prompts.
