Routine Flushing of Fire Hydrants
Water mains are flushed annually in order to:
- Clean out deposits, sediments and rust from our distribution pipelines;
- Minimize water quality problems;
- Test fire protection water pressures;
- Exercise hydrant valves; and
- Identify hydrants that need to be repaired or replaced.
Motorists and pedestrians are asked to avoid driving or walking through the water coming directly from a hydrant while the main is being flushed. If it is not possible to avoid the area, please proceed with caution.
The Water Distribution Division manages the operation and maintenance of a complex water distribution system consisting of transmission mains, water booster stations, pressure regulators, storage reservoirs, and groundwater sources. Premium water quality is maintain through the efforts of water system sampling, water quality, complaint investigation, backflow protection and needed system upgrades.
