Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant Flushing

Periodically you will see Public Works personnel releasing water from hydrants. Hydrant flushing is necessary to test the hydrants to make sure adequate flow and pressure is available. Flushing is also done to remove sediment from the pipes in order to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution pipes. 

The following dates are planned for 2020:

  • Week of April 20 - 24
  • Week of October 19 - 23

Flushing on these dates will begin at 8:00 p.m. and end at 10:30 p.m.
