Annual Hydrant Flushing – Month of October
The Public Works Department will be conducting routine hydrant flushing this month. The process removes sediment and rust from the water and helps maintain proper chlorine concentrations in the water. The maintenance further assists in sustaining the integrity of the pipes.
When hydrant flushing occurs in your neighborhood, you may notice slightly yellow, orange, or brownish water coming from your faucet. If this happens, run your cold water tap for three to five minutes.
