Water Department Conducting Fire Hydrant Maintenance

Posted by aprile on May 10, 2012

The City of Auburn Water Department will be flushing all City-owned fire hydrants beginning Monday, May 21, concentrating on areas with cul-de-sacs and non-looped water mains. The hours for flushing will be Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., as scheduling permits.

Flushing may stir up mineral deposits in the water main causing a discoloration of the water. This discoloration poses no threat to health and is safe to consume. If you notice discolored water in your home, run all cold water taps for 3-5 minutes or until the water clears before laundering whites.

Hydrant flushing keeps the water mains clean and ensures the greatest quality of water throughout the entire system. Flushing also helps to ensure the fire hydrants are working properly for fire protection purposes.

For more information, contact the Auburn Water Department at (260) 925-5711.
