Fire Hydrant Flushing

Monday, April 17, 2017

Hydrant flushing in residential neighborhoods will generally take place weekdays during regular business hours. Flushing on main roads such as Wilson Mills and S.O.M. Center may be completed on weekend mornings as it is safer for our crews due to the reduced traffic. Signs will be posted in the areas to be flushed at least a day in advance. It is not uncommon for water to be cloudy or dark after flushing has occurred so we recommend running water from a tap or faucet prior drinking or washing clothes to ensure it is clear. Police dispatch is typically advised when the crews are out flushing and are notified of the areas involved.
