Fire Hydrant Flushing
Wednesday, May 13, 2020
Hydrant flushing is done to ensure that hydrants are in working order for fire protection and to remove mineral deposits that may accumulate in the water distribution system.
In order for the Public Works Department to complete this work in a safe and orderly fashion, we request that you…
· Please use caution when approaching flushing operations.
· Please refrain from doing laundry between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., if possible. Be sure to check the color of your water prior to doing laundry since discolored water may stain clothing, particularly whites.
· Please limit household water use, as well as outside watering and irrigation, when you see flushing operations in your neighborhood. This will help minimize household water discoloration.
We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation. If you have any questions or experience discolored water after these dates please contact the Public Work Department at 419-335-8376.
