Pickleball in Canal Fulton
We have received numerous requests over the last few months to add pickleball courts somewhere in the City. We are pleased to announce that both tennis courts at Muhlhauser Park have now been retrofitted to allow for pickleball and tennis. A special thanks to Carpenter Asphalt for doing a great job resurfacing the tennis courts, and then subsequently donating the labor and materials to add pickleball lines – thank you very much, your efforts are appreciated!

PUCO ISSUES GUIDANCE ON WATER SUPPLY FLUSHING
The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) has issued the following memo regarding water supply flushing:
As businesses and buildings reopen under the “Responsible RestartOhio” plan due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that have had little to no water usage, it is important to flush water that has been stagnant. Low water usage can contribute to bacterial growth, including Legionella which can cause a serious type of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease. It can also cause other water quality issues with potential health risks due to the build-up of lead and copper in stagnant water that’s been collecting in older pipes and fixtures.
As buildings reopen, it is critical to drain, flush, and if necessary based on a review of building conditions, disinfect the hot and cold-water systems to remove harmful contaminants. Devices that store water, such as drinking water fountains, water heaters, storage tanks, and any droplet or mist-forming devices such as cooling towers, humidifiers, showerheads, and certain medical and manufacturing devices and process equipment should also be flushed and disinfected in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations or industry best practices.
The Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has issued a letter with more information, which you can access HERE, as well as “Guidance for Premise Plumbing Water Service Restoration”, which you can access HERE.
