[ARCHIVED] Annual hydrant flushing starts April 16

hydrant flushing

The first round of the City's annual fire hydrant flushing begins Tuesday, April 16, and continues through Thursday, April 18, in the following areas:

Miller’s Run subdivision north of Tylersville
Stockton Station subdivision
Northpointe Drive
Distribution Circle
Route 4 south of Muhlhauser Road

The City's Water Division performs hydrant flushing primarily to improve water quality by removing built-up sediment from the public water lines.

Residents in the impacted areas may experience discolored water for a short period of time during or after flushing efforts. If this occurs, residents should run water through several inside faucets for 5 to 10 minutes until the water becomes clear.
