LEETONIA–The water/sewer department will conduct hydrant flushing in September.

Village administrators announced at village council’s meeting Wednesday night that flushing will begin Sept. 9 on the northside (north of High Street). He said the north side will likely take two weeks to complete before moving to the south side. The south side should take approximately three weeks to complete, with the whole process expected to be finished by mid-October, Phillips said.
