2019 Hydrant Flushing has begun as of June 17th -
Zone 7 in progress
Hydrant flushing is the process of running water through the fire hydrants.
This important action serves dual purposes, the first of which is to remove sediment and iron deposits from the main water lines. Secondly, the flush simulates the working conditions of hydrants, and ensures the best fire protection for our community.
Hydrant flushing occurs Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. throughout the summer months. Barricades and signs will bring awareness to residents and drivers of the areas affected by hydrant flushing. Hydrant flushing alerts will also be posted on the city website in CF News.
