The Pevely Police Department is collecting old and unwanted cell phones with chargers.
The purpose of the collection, is to provide a way for victims of domestic violence and other crimes a means of contacting 911 in the event of an emergency. Cell phones do not require an active line of service in order to contact 911. Therefore our officers can give out the cell phones to victims at no cost.
Your donated phone can be dropped off at Dispatch, located at 401 Main Street. If you have any questions feel free to contact Sergeant Weiss, at 636-475-5301.
Your donations are appreciated and could save a life.
In the spring, you may see an open fire hydrant with a stream of water running down the street. This practice is an important part of the city drinking water system’s preventive maintenance program.
Why are hydrants flushed?
Hydrant flushing is necessary to test the hydrants to make sure adequate flow and pressure is available. Flushing is also done to remove fine sediment particles from the system in order to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution pipes.
Is my water safe to drink after flushing?
As a result of the line flushing process, residents in the immediate vicinity may experience temporary water discoloration. This discoloration consists primarily of harmless silt and air and does not affect the safety of the water. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears. If it doesn’t clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. It is not recommended that yo drink the water until it is clear. You should avoid washing clothes until the water clears.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: When does flushing occur?
A: Normally during the early spring for about a month.
Q: Is the Water Department the only ones that flush the lines?
A: No, Fire Departments are required to flush hydrants when they are testing hydrants to make sure adequate flow
and pressure is available.
Q: What should I do when I see city crews flushing hydrants in my area?
A: SLOW DOWN AND BE ALERT FOR WORKERS.
Q: What should I do if my water pressure or volume seems low after flushing?
A: Check your faucet and washer screens for trapped debris.
Q: Is it OK to drink sediment-laden or discolored water during temporary disturbance events?
A: It is recommended that water users wait until the water has cleared before using it for drinking purposes.
Q: What is the silt in the water system after flushing?
A: Water contains minerals and these minerals react with the inside of the pipe to produce the by-product. This chemical reaction between the pipe and water is a normal and natural process. This process can occur on the inside of the pipe and prevent an adequate volume of water flow. The flushing process removes much of this by-product.
Q: What causes cloudy/milky water?
A: In the late fall and winter months the water that enters your homes can be quite cold. When this cold water enters your home plumbing, it is exposed to significantly warmer temperatures. This causes dissolved oxygen, that can reach and significantly higher levels in colder water than in warmer water, to escape in the form of “micro-bubbles” that can give water a cloudy appearance. if a glass of this water is allowed to sit for a short period of time the cloudy effect will dissipate.
