Fire Hydrant Flushing

Each spring, the Fire Department flushes water lines through the City’s fire hydrants. Hydrant flushing is an important preventive maintenance activity that maintains the integrity of the water system and enables the Fire Department to ensure hydrants are in working order.

Hydrant flushing signs are attached to the hydrants the day before flushing is scheduled.
