[ARCHIVED] City cleans drinking water pipes

ice pigging

Beginning in the overnight hours on Thursday, Feb. 20, the city will clean drinking water pipes in specific neighborhoods using a technique called “ice pigging.” Over time, drinking water pipes build up a residue or sediment that requires periodic cleaning. Using a technique called “ice pigging,” an ice slurry comprised of the city’s tap water and food-grade salt, is pumped through pipes to remove residue. The ice pigging procedure is an alternative to flushing the pipes, and 1,000 times more effective in cleaning pipes and requires minimal downtime. During the process there will be no water outages. Affected residents have been notified in advance of the cleaning via mail and will receive door hangers 24-hours before the cleaning begins, which will occur nightly through Monday, March 2. Areas include South Atlantic Avenue, Peninsula Drive, North Beach Street, Ballough Road and Williamson Blvd. During the cleaning, residents are asked to not turn on their faucets, showers and washing machines. Customers can call the water department at (386) 671-8815 or (386) 671-8809 for more information.
