In addition to the ongoing annual hydrant flushing currently being conducted citywide by the Department of Public Works, The Fire Department will be flushing fire hydrants over the next week for routine system maintenance.
work will take place from 9:00 A.M. to 8:15 P.M., August 10th - 17th, with
the exception of Sunday.
a result of this work, you may experience a short period of water
discoloration. Although the water may be discolored, it is safe to
drink. Until the water runs clear, however, you may wish to avoid
washing clothes, especially white fabrics. If any rust stains appear on
wet laundry, the clothes should not be dried, and you should contact
311 for a free bottle of rust remover.
