Hydrant flushing serves an important dual purpose of removing sediment and iron deposits from the mains and it also provides a check of the working conditions of hydrants to insure the best fire protection for our community.
- Hydrant flushing will occur during daytime hours—from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. — Monday through Friday.
- Hydrant flushing begins June 17 and will end approximately July 26, 2013.
- Barricades and signs will alert residents and drivers of areas of hydrant flushing.
- Water may appear discolored after flushing . . . allow the cold water to run until it clears up.
The water will be SAFE FOR DRINKING, but the discoloration will affect laundry and certain types of processing.
