Annual Hydrant Flushing in Progress 9/07/21 – 10/08/21
Hydrant flushing is necessary to maintain the high-quality water that is delivered to water customers.
Routine hydrant flushing removes sediment and rust from the water and helps maintain proper chlorine concentrations in the water. This routine maintenance keeps the water moving thus preventing it from becoming stagnant and helps sustain the integrity of the pipes.
When hydrant flushing occurs in your neighborhood, you may notice slightly yellow, orange, or brownish colored water coming from your faucet. If this happens, run your cold water tap for three to five minutes. If the discoloration persists, call the City of Canfield at 330-533-1101 and we will assist with further flushing.
Though it may seem that water is being wasted, flushing hydrants is an important preventive measure taken by the City of Canfield to provide safe, clean drinking water to our customers.
