Hydrant Flushing Begins September 20

Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant flushing will begin Tuesday, September 20, 2022. The purpose of this procedure is to ensure there is adequate water pressure to the fire hydrants. The flushing will be done from 8 am to 4 pm on weekdays. 

Residents may notice discoloration of the water when the flushing takes place. If you experience discoloration, run the cold water from a fixture that is located on the lowest level of the house until the water runs clear. Avoid doing laundry or using the dishwasher until the water runs clear.

Due to the water mains being "looped" or interconnected, there is no control over sediment or discoloration in the water in areas not being directly tested. If you notice discolored water in your area, please refrain from using the water until it runs clear. 

Resident should receive a postcard in the mail later this week. Dates on the postcard are anticipated/estimated and are subject to change. Responses to emergency calls may alter the schedule. If any further information is needed, please call Public Works at 246-1800, Ext. 200. For daily schedule updates, please call 246-1800, Ext. 305.
