The periodic flushing of hydrants and mains typically occurs in spring and fall. Periodically you will see Water Utility personnel releasing water from hydrants. Hydrant flushing is necessary to test the hydrants to make sure adequate flow and pressure is available. Flushing is also done to remove sediment from the pipes in order to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution pipes. If you have any questions on the hydrant flushing , please call the Utility Office at 262-569-2196.
