Hydrant Flushing for 2016 has been Completed 

Water mains are the big pipes which bring fresh water to your home. Flushing removes natural minerals, like iron, which are harmless, but can discolor your water. If you see our crews working in your area, please try to use as little, or if possible, no water for an hour. Allowing the water to settle ensures that you won’t draw discoloration into your water system.

Should you find discoloration in your system, stop using the water, wait about an hour, and then draw off the discolored water through a cold water tap only.

We know it’s tough to go without water, but an hour of inconvenience while we flush, can help avoid problems in the future.
