Sewer & Water

Hydrant flushing in april and may:
Fire hydrant flushing is scheduled to begin in April and continue into May, weather permitting.  Hydrants will be flushed Monday-Friday from 7 am to 3 pm.

It is necessary to flush all fire hydrants in the city to ensure they are in good working condition and to clear out sediment and rust deposits, as well as to evaluate water pressure and flow throughout the city.

You may notice some temporary discoloration of the water while hydrant flushing is taking place in your area.  The discoloration is caused by iron particles that have been dislodged from the water mains.

We recommend that you avoid washing clothes while hydrants are being flushed in your area, as discolored water may leave stains on your clothes.  If your water is discolored, flush your residential system by running the cold water (perhaps water your lawn or trees) for 10 to 20 minutes.
