Hydrant Flushing

You may have noticed open hydrants around town with water gushing. This is a mandated requirement of the water system. Pipes holding water over time build deposits causing water quality problems. This occasional flushing is to prevent such from occurring. Hydrant flushing is usually done during the night in order to least impact the users.
