The Annual Water Main Flushing Program typically takes place in the Spring in the areas and subdivisions that are served by Spotsylvania County Utilities. Private water systems and mobile home parks will not be flushed as part of this program.
Flushing generally starts in March and ends in May each year. Please check the Annual Water Main Flushing Program page for the estimated schedule. Please keep in mind the schedule can change because it is never known how long a system will take to flush clean. In addition, other emergencies arise from time to time which requires the attention of the crews and will prevent them from flushing. Therefore, the flushing may be extended a couple of weeks depending on circumstances. During the flushing season, crews work each day, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), from 7:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
