The Public Works Department will be flushing fire hydrants from April 18 through mid-May. Hydrant flushing clears out sediment from water lines which helps improve water quality and maintains the municipal water system health. It also supports the City’s public safety efforts by ensuring hydrants are operational for fire protection.
Residents may experience temporary discoloration of water because of nearby flushing. This does not affect the safety of the water, as the discoloration is made up of harmless silt and air. If discoloration occurs, run water faucets until the water clears.
This online map shows the “Orange Zone” area which is being flushed. Several crews will “leapfrog” each other, flushing each hydrant for 5 minutes until the zone is completed. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Public Works by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 303-661-1277.
