   The Grenada Water and Sewer Department has begun flushing hydrants and customers might notice a slight discoloration in their water in the coming weeks, but it’s nothing to worry about, according to the superintendent.
   “The water is perfectly safe to drink,” said Superintendent Dale Ratliff.
   “Customers may want to test their water before washing white clothes, however,” Ratliff said.
   The department has some 800 hydrants to flush, Ratliff said.
   Flushing a hydrant can take anywhere from five minutes to half an hour, Ratliff said.
