Fire hydrant flushing

Hyrdrant flushing is part of the City's annual maintenance and done to remove minerals and sediment that accumulate in the water lines over the course of a year. This preventative maintenance also allows us to check and record water pressure to ensure the water system is functioning properly.

Please take advantage of our graphical map to see which areas of the city are currently having their hydrants flushed.
