The Public Works Department flushes fire hydrants to clean out iron deposits in the water lines, to verify the hydrants are properly working, and to assure continued high quality drinking water. Fire hydrant flushing also provides the Fire and Water Departments with valuable information.   

Will Hydrant Flushing Affect Your Water?

During the flushing process, you may experience some water discoloration, especially when work is being done in your immediate neighborhood. Once the hydrant flushing is complete, the water quality will improve.

What Precautions Should You Take?

Before doing laundry or other projects that may suffer from discolored water, make sure the water is running clear. Keep a pitcher of clean water in the refrigerator.
