How Does Flushing Benefit Your Water?
Flushing of the Water Mains
Flushing the water mains improves water quality by removing sediment that slowly builds up at the bottom of the water main over time. The sediment comes from internal corrosion of the water mains over many years.
Water main ﬂushing is the process of cleaning or “scouring” the interior of water distribution mains (pipes) by sending a rapid ﬂow of water through the mains. Distribution mains convey water to homes, businesses and hydrants in your neighborhood. Flushing helps maintain water quality.
What To Expect?
During water Main Flushing, the scouring of water lines can also cause brown water, run your outside hose spigot until the water clears. Remember this is beneficial in the long run and can cause moments of frustration, but this is normal!
You will not run out of water, our Operator will be keeping a close eye on the storage tanks. If you experience low pressure give it some time, as we may be flushing in your area.
Operators and DPW will be working night hours in addition to not disturb your water usage. Do not be alarmed.
