The city of Mankato will flush water mains next week, beginning on Sunday.

Officials say they do so routinely in order to clean the water distribution system. They suggest customers avoid or limit water usage from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on the day their neighborhood is impacted. The city says the water is safe to drink, but it may stain.
