Hydrant Flushing

August 31, 2022

Beginning September 1st, we will be flushing the fire hydrants periodically. This will continue through the month of November. 

Hydrant flushing can make the water appear temporarily rusty/brown because the iron and mineral deposits in the water get stirred up.

The water is safe to use and consume during hydrant flushing. Thank you.
