Public Works Notice - Hydrant Flushing

fire hydrant on the street

The Department of Public Works will be flushing several fire hydrants around the City starting Tuesday, October 22 and Wednesday, October 23. 2019.

Please note, the hydrant flushing will be completed by this Friday, October 25, 2019. As a reminder, you may temporarily experience yellow/cloudy water during this time period.

This is not unusual and the water is safe to drink and bathe in. It will clear up quickly once flows have moderated in the system.

If you happen to use any of the discolored water while washing light and/or white clothing you may need to rewash your laundry with a product specifically made to remove iron which is available at most stores (bleach will not remove iron spots). 

We appreciate your patience while our DPW crews are out there.
