[ARCHIVED] Building preparations during Phase I

As we prepare to enter Phase I of the governor’s three-step plan to reopen the state, the Town of Mooresville would like for facilities to consider flushing your plumbing system prior to your customers or employees occupying the building again.

When water sits in a building where there is little or no activity for a long period of time, it becomes stagnant without people using faucets, toilets or other items. The chlorine that is used to disinfect the water breaks down over time, and can lead to bacteria growth in plumbing, and unpleasant taste or odors. By running your faucets (both hot and cold water) for a period of time, you can ensure that the water in your facility is the freshly treated water coming from the Town’s distribution system.   

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has very detailed information on reactivating plumbing systems after dormant conditions on its website at

As always, should you have any questions about your water and wastewater utility service, please contact the Town at 704-663-3800.
