Hydrant Flushing
Annual Hydrant Flushing
Residents often ask why the Village flushes fire hydrants every year. Regular hydrant flushing is a vital part of maintenance for the water system for these important reasons:
  • Improves water quality - Flushing removes minerals such as iron and magnesium that have collected in the water mains
  • Improves water flow - By removing these minerals, the inside diameter of a water main is increased and therefore allows a better flow of water
  • Hydrant maintenance - A fire hydrant is a mechanical device; operation of a hydrant lubricates internal mechanisms and gaskets
  • Hydrant inspection - Any deficiencies are noted and repaired as necessary to ensure that each hydrant will perform when needed for an emergency.
