Why does the City flush Fire Hydrants?

HydrantHydrant flushing is a practice used to clean pipes of sediment. It also ensures that hydrants are in working order in the event of an emergency. Performing this task citywide assists in maintaining and supplying clean water to all utility users. This is a manual task done by city employees. While we try to complete this during the late evening hours, some low water pressure may be experienced during daytime hours.
