In accordance with the Kentucky Administrative Regulations, 401 KAR 8:020 SECTION 2, 13a:
"To protect public health, a distribution system may be thoroughly flushed at least twice a year, usually in the spring and fall. The purpose of systematic flushing is to reduce turbidity created from the scouring of accumulated sediment within the water lines."
Morehead Utility Plant Board
