The Fall Hydrant Flushing program will begin on the First Monday of October at 10:00 pm and is scheduled to take five weeks to complete.
Semi-annually our staff opens fire hydrant valves to allow water to flow through the pipes. Systematically opening the hydrants enhances water quality by flushing sediment from the main line pipesverifies the proper operation of hydrants and valves, and ensures that the hydrant is operational in case of a fire emer gency.
If you see discolored water, shut off the tap and wait several minutes. Then check the clarity by running cold water for a few minutes, allowing new water to work its way into your pipes. Avoid washing laundry until water runs clear at the tap.
