Evansville Water & Light customers may experience an intermittent “blink” in their electric service from time-to-time. Blinks like this can have various causes: a tree branch slapping against a line, a squirrel grounding itself on a line, wind making the electric lines gallop, or a momentary drop in voltage from our electric transmission supplier. As you can imagine it’s hard to track down the exact cause of a blink in the system as it’s something that happens very quickly and then it’s gone. We are working on walking out the affected circuits as a precautionary measure to ensure nothing stands out to us as a potential cause for re-occurrence on our end of the system. We work hard to keep the lights on and greatly appreciate our customers and the information they provide that helps us track down any active issues.
If you experience an outage or see something that doesn’t look right don’t hesitate to call us at 608-882-2288.

Directional flushing compartmentalizes the City’s water system and allows us to better flush each individual sections which will greatly reduce the amounts of settled iron and manganese present in the pipes. These minerals are naturally occurring in the aquifer that we draw from and pose no health risk. Overtime these minerals can settle and oxidizes at the bottom of the water mains. When the water is stirred up from abnormally high flow it can cause a brownish colored water. The reason we are using this method is to mitigate these occurrences of discolored water in the system and hopefully remove the deposits better than what we achieved through previous methods. Water quality is of the utmost importance to the City. We take great pride in the work we do to provide our utility users with clean and safe water. Check back soon to see the 2021 Spring and Fall Hydrant Flushing schedule.
