[ARCHIVED] Fire Hydrant Flushing

Fire hydrant spraying water with test "Fall hydrant flushing"

Each spring and fall, the City flushes fire hydrants to ensure that all hydrants are operating properly and to clear sediment build-up. After flushing, residents may notice a rusty look to tap water and should run their cold water for 2-5 minutes until clear (if you run the warm water the discolored water may get into your water heater and you will need to run your hot water for longer to flush it out). If your softened water is discolored after flushing, we recommend that you manually recharge your softener. Please check for discolored water before laundering clothes as it may stain certain fabrics. If clothes develop stains, do not dry, but rewash immediately to remove stains. Although the water may be discolored, it is perfectly safe to drink.

The City requests that residents park their cars further away from hydrants during the time periods when flushing takes place. Please continue to check the City website and Facebook page for more information on specific hydrant flushing dates each year.

Fire hydrant flushing begins Monday, October 17.
