Hydrant Flushing Program
Over time, water mains corrode from the inside as well as the outside, and reduce the inside diameter. The flushing program will remove the most recent mineral deposits, improving the water quality as well as the hydraulic carrying capacity of the pipe.
Residents are asked to refrain from using water while crews are flushing in their area, as the water may have a brown or rusty appearance. The discolored water should last for no more than 4 – 5 hours, but residents may want to store water ahead of time for potable use.
