Hydrant flushing

We flush water hydrants to maintain water quality.

We flush water hydrants on a regular basis to

  • Help maintain good water quality
  • Verify the hydrants are in working order

Your water may discolor when we flush a nearby hydrant

  • This happens because the flushing process stirs up mineral deposits inside the pipe.
  • We can't predict if your water will discolor.
  • It is safe to drink discolored water.

Things to avoid when we are flushing hydrants in your area

  • Doing laundry, especially light colors
  • Letting children get too close to our work area
