Hydrant Flushing
 
Posted on Friday April 01, 2011
 
Starting Monday April 25th the fire department will be conducting our semi-annual hydrant testing and flushing.
 

Fire hydrants are flushed in the spring and fall to make sure they are working properly and to maintain the quality of the water supply by flushing out any sediment and rust and bringing fresh water into the ends of distribution lines.

Due to the hydrant flushing, it is inevitable that some residents will receive rust-colored water that could stain laundry, but it is safe to drink. You should check for signs of discoloration prior to washing clothes. If the water is discolored when you turn on your tap, simply run the water until it is clear.
