Fire Hydrant Flushing

The City’s fire hydrants will be flushed, in stages, over an expected-two week period. Work will take place from 8:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. beginning on Sunday, October 22. There will not be a disruption in water service or water pressure. Expect to see water in the roads in the mornings following flushing.

You may experience lower-than-normal water pressure and a short period of water discoloration during flushing and shortly thereafter. Though the water may be discolored, it is safe to drink. However, until the water runs clear, it is advisable to avoid washing clothes, especially white fabrics. Simply run the cold water in your house or at a hose until it is clear. This will flush any discolored water out of your water service line.
