Hydrant Flushing

By Chief Justin Lee
May 23, 2017

Hope Valley-Wyoming Fire District will be flushing hydrants in both Richmond and Hopkinton on Tuesday, May 30th starting at 9am. All flushing will be completed by 1pm.

Why are hydrants flushed?

Periodically, you will see Fire District 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.

Is my water safe to drink after flushing?

Your water is safe to drink. Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears. If it doesn't clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. You should avoid washing clothes until the water clears.
