Ice Pigging Schedule

St. Cloud Environmental Utilities has contracted with American Pipeline Solutions to conduct the second round of Ice Pigging in some portions of the water distribution system which have experienced discolored water located between Old Canoe Creek and Canoe Creek roads and south of 13th street. The Ice Pigging will begin July 26, 2021 and be conducted through September 11, 2021. This procedure is an alternative to flushing mains, especially mains that might be causing issues with discolored water. Ice Pigging is a technique that is more effective than flushing in removing particles and sediments from pipe walls. An ice slurry is pumped through a section of main to "clean" it. During the flushing process, a small amount of sodium chloride (table salt) may enter your service line. Customers should avoid using water during the time of the main cleaning and should run their taps for 2 to 3 minutes prior to using the water for drinking or cooking after the completion of the procedure. If a salty taste is detected, run your tap for a longer period of time. Generally, if you detect a cooler temperature of the water from your tap, you have sufficiently flushed out your service line. If the water becomes very cold, continue to run your tap for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.

For healthy individuals, the sodium intake from water is not important, because a much greater intake of sodium takes place from salt in the diet. However, sodium levels above the recommended upper limit of 50 milligrams per liter may be a concern to individuals on sodium restricted diet, or those on dialysis.
