Flush First Before Reopening
The City of Banning encourages businesses to follow federal Centers for Disease Control guidelines and flush water lines before reopening once the COVID-19 shutdown has lifted. During the closure, many businesses have sat idle and water lines most likely have been unused. It is strongly recommended to property flush these water lines for at least 10-15 minutes to ensure water quality and safety before business operations commence once again. Restaurants should also empty and refill ice makers and similar appliances connected to tap water. Please review Large Building Water System Startup Guidelines for Commercial Customers for additional information. For inquiries or assistance, please call Public Works @ 951-922-3130.
