Fire Hydrant Flushing – Starting Monday, May 4, 2020

The hydrant flushing program is very important to the maintenance of the City’s water distribution system.  Each year, Public Service Technicians systematically open hydrants throughout the City to allow water to flow at a high velocity through the distribution mainlines.  This operation serves the following purposes:

* Helps maintain the City’s water clarity and quality
* Cleans iron and mineral deposits from the water mains
* Identifies malfunctions of the hydrant and related valves
* Ensures adequate water flow is available to fire fighters at the hydrants

Fire hydrant flushing may cause temporary inconveniences such as a reduction in pressure and aesthetic issues such as discoloration of the drinking water.  Discolored water poses no threat to the public’s health, but it will stain laundry and if consumed may have an unpleasant taste or odor. Residents should be certain all discolored water is out of their home’s plumbing and hot water heater prior to laundering clothes or drinking.

What should I do if my water is discolored?
Run both the hot and cold water until clear.
