Seal Coating


Friday (Aug. 23) seal coating schedule:
All public parking lots
1st St NW
1st St NE
Center Ave N
Adams Ave NE
4th St NE

Temporary “no parking” signs are being placed today. Please refrain from parking on the marked streets until the signs are removed. More seal coating will be done on Monday (Aug. 26). Thank you!

The City of Madelia Street Department will be seal coating the Northeast and Northwest sections of the community as well as City parking lots and alleys on August 22nd, 2019 (tentative date).

During the patching and prep work, streets, or portions of streets, will be temporarily closed. Throughout the seal coating process, traffic is restricted until the aggregate is applied and parking is prohibited on the streets being coated. Any parked cars left on the marked streets will be towed to driveways or around the block in the event that they are not moved. The streets due for seal coating will be marked off with signs. Streets will be available for parking when signs are removed after the aggregate is applied and the necessary compaction is complete.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Hydrant Flushing

The City of Madelia Water Department will be flushing water mains May 13th through May 17th, 2019. Due to the amount of sediment which coats the water mains over the winter months, the city flushes the mains to keep the mains open and flowing with the least amount of matter in the lines. The reason the mains are flushed on weekends rather than during the week is due to the fact that a significant amount of water is used during the week and the city wells cannot provide the water needed to operate industries, provide water to homes, have a reserve for fire protection and flush water mains all at the same time.

If you have discolored water, after the flushing has been completed in your area, run your tap water until the water is clear. The discolored water is iron buildup and is not harmful to individuals.
