 For Immediate Release 

City of Fort Scott - Press Release 

The City of Fort Scott Water Utilities will be initializing a free chlorine burnout on the water distribution system starting Wednesday, July 26th and ending as soon as a free chlorine residual is established throughout the entire system (approx. 4 weeks).  This burnout is necessary maintenance of the distribution system which will help maintain the high water quality that you have come to expect.  Occasionally during this process customers may temporarily experience low pressures, bad taste or odors, discolored water, or even some sediment in their water.  We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Any questions, concerns, or comments are welcome.  Please contact the Water Treatment Plant at 223-5160 between 8:00 to 4:30 P.M. Monday through Friday.
