What is the annual flushing program?

The Annual Water Main Flushing Program helps to clean sediments from the our water mains that may have accumulated over the previous year.  It also allows us the opportunity to check and operate many of our fire hydrants to determine if maintenance is required. 

Generally, the flushing program begins in March and ends in May of each year.  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 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.  Also, during the flushing in your immediate area, it is suggested that you do not wash your clothes during these operations.  The crews assigned to the flushing program generally operate Monday through Friday from 7:00am - 3:00pm, with the exception of holidays.

We appreciate your cooperation during these operations; and, as always, we will endeavor to keep any inconvenience to a minimum.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Utilities Administration offices at (540) 507-7300.
