Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant flushing is done annually to remove any sediment that may accumulate in low-flow areas of our water distribution system. This operation maintains the overall excellent water quality in our distribution system and ensures that each fire hydrant operates properly. Customers may notice lower water pressure and a slight discoloration of water as flushing is performed in your area. This discoloration is not harmful and will clear up if you let the water run for a few extra minutes.
