Fire Hydrant Flushing
We flush fire hydrants twice each year in spring and fall and throughout the year if necessary. Hydrant flushing:
- improves water quality
- exercises hydrants so they are in good functioning order when needed for an emergency
- removes sediment that may cause discolored water
- alllows us to inspect each hydrant for defects
If you do experience discoloration in your water, we recommend running the cold water for several minutes to help clear the discoloration before using it for drinking or laundry.
