Hydrant Flushing Schedule

As part of the regular maintenance to the City’s water distribution system, the Public Works Water Division performs seasonal hydrant flushing.  By simply flushing hydrants to allow water to flow rapidly through them [in a controlled manner], water quality is improved and mineral build-up in the water mains is minimized. Hydrant flushing also ensures that hydrants are ready for emergency use.
