Hydrant Flushing

An important part of the maintenance of the fire hydrant system in our Borough is flushing the hydrants twice a year.  Flushing the hydrant exercises the hydrant valve and proves to us that the hydrant is operating properly.  It also removes any dirt that is sitting in the pipes underground and cleans the water mains out.  By doing this important maintenance of the hydrant system, we ensure that our fire protection water supply is reliable and will be there in case of an emergency.
