Summer Hydrant Flushing

As part of system maintenance, the crew will be flushing water hydrants.  

While flushing is underway, customers may notice large amounts of water in the streets, a temporary drop in water pressure, or water that is discolored or cloudy. The discoloration of water is caused by the presence of naturally occurring sediment and does not create a health concern. If you notice sediment in the water from house faucets during the flushing, we recommend that you turn off the inside faucet, then allow water to run from an outside hose bib or the cold water tap of the bathtub until the water runs clear.

Thank you for your patience during the hydrant flushing process.
