Hydrant flushing underway

Fire Hydrant with Water

Public Works staff will begin flushing hydrants throughout the City the week of September 12. They will begin at Tower Park and work their way throughout the City. They expect the process to take approximately 3 weeks to complete.
 
 Hydrants and watermains are flushed annually. During the process, Public Works will check the hydrants and connecting valves and lines to ensure everything is functioning correctly. Flushing of the fire hydrants ensures their reliability and dislodges & removes particle build-up from the watermain, and allows staff to inspect them and make any necessary repairs. This work will be conducted from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday until all hydrants are serviced.
 
 During this process:

  • The water is SAFE to drink.
  • If water is temporarily discolored, do not use for washing - especially white clothes. If you notice discoloration of your laundry after washing DO NOT put them in the dryer.  After clearing your line, re-wash your laundry, this will usually remove any discoloration.
  • To help clear discolored water, open all COLD water taps for 15-30 minutes or until the water runs clear.

For EMERGENCY situations, please call 651-747-2417
