Fire Hydrant Flushing Begins 10/5

A city-wide fire hydrant flushing will begin on Sunday, October 4th starting at 9pm.  Hydrant flushing will take place at night during the first phase of the project and then move to daytime hours as the project moves away from the urban areas and out to the residential areas.  It is anticipated that the flushing will take four weeks to complete. Hydrant flushing is essential to maintain water quality and maintain adequate fire flows throughout the system.  No interruption to service is expected.
Residents may notice a decrease in water pressure and a slight change in the color of the water which is temporary and does not pose any health threats.
Updates to the areas being flushed will be posted on the website.
Questions may be directed to the Department of Public Works at 692-4266.
