WHAT’S NEW AT
THE CUDAHY WATER UTILITY
- Summer has finally arrived! Each year around this time, City of Cudahy Water Utility crews work their way thru the city flushing fire hydrants - During flushing activities, hydrants are opened for a limited period at strategic points of the system, moving water through the pipes at a high speed to discharge minerals & sediment that settle in the pipes over time. Residents in the immediate vicinity may experience a temporary reduction in water pressure & discoloration of water (The temporary discoloration only affects the appearance of the water - it DOES NOT affect the safety or quality of the water.) If your water appears discolored, simply run your cold water for 3 - 5 minutes to allow new water to enter your pipes. While the water is safe to drink, you should avoid washing laundry during flushing times, as the flushed sediment could discolor white or light-colored clothing. Wait until the water runs clear at the tap, then wash a load of dark clothes first. You should also avoid using hot water until the cold water runs clear;

Make sure to review your water bill when you receive it - If your bill shows "0" Water Usage, you may have an out-of-order radio on your meter and the Water Utility is not receiving meter reads. This can result in a large "Catch Up" bill once it is discovered and repaired ... If you see Zero Use on your bill, contact the Water Utility, (414) 769-2237, to schedule a Meter Replacement appointment as soon as you can.
