Water Main Flushing Program

The Annual Water Main Flushing program takes place in areas and subdivisions that are served by Spotsylvania County's Utilities Department (SCU).  The Annual Water Main Flushing program began on March 19, 2018 and will continue through May 2018.  Crews will work each day, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), from 7:30am until 3:30pm.  Typically, entire subdivisions are completed in one to two days.

What is the Annual Water Main Flushing Program?

Information about this program is sent to customers via bill insert and notices are posted in the local newspaper, The Free Lance Star.

Areas Completed

IMPORTANT:   During the flushing of the water mains in your immediate area, you may notice a temporary reduction of water pressure or some discoloration in your tap water.  This discoloration condition is not harmful and should clear up quickly by leaving your cold water running for approximately 15 minutes, once flushing in your neighborhood is complete.  We suggest you do not wash clothes during these operations in your neighborhood.

If discoloration persists, please call (540) 507-7300, option 2, M-F, 8am-4:30pm, or after-hours/weekends/holidays, please call (540) 507-7340 or (540) 507-7350.  

Additionally, to reduce/prevent erosion problems, please check your culvert pipes and ditches to make sure they are free of leaves and debris.  

We appreciate your cooperation and we will endeavor to keep any inconvenience to a minimum.
