Underground Utilities Department to begin Flushing Fire Hydrants

Posted on: September 17th, 2021 No Comments

 

The City of Piqua Underground Utilities Department will begin fire hydrant flushing on Monday, September 20, 2021. Hydrant flushing will take place Monday through Thursday between 5:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. This program may take up to five weeks to complete.

The primary purpose of this program is to verify the proper operation of the city’s fire hydrants through periodic inspections, flow testing, and preventative maintenance. Secondarily, a pro-active hydrant flushing program is the key to mitigating water quality-related aesthetic problems by removing accumulated iron and manganese mineral deposits from the waterline.

Fire hydrant flushing may cause temporary inconveniences such as a reduction in water pressure and aesthetic issues such as discoloration of the drinking water. Discolored water poses no threat to the public’s health, but it will stain laundry and if consumed may have an unpleasant taste. Residents should be certain all discolored water is out of their home’s plumbing and hot water heater before laundering clothes or drinking. If clothes become discolored due to the flushing operations, do not place the clothes in the dryer.

Although residents may experience some temporary inconveniences, the flushing program is necessary to maintain a good water supply for both firefighting and domestic purposes. Your cooperation with this program is appreciated. If you continue to notice discolored water coming from your fixture please flush the cold water side for approximately 5 minutes. If the discoloration persists, please feel free to contact the City of Piqua Underground Utilities Department at 778-2018.
