Hydrant Flushing Date Changes

 The City's Annual Fire Hydrant Flushing Program will be moved to the Fall. The program, typically scheduled mid-April through May, will now start in September. Hydrant flushing can cause an increase in watermain breaks and discolored water for a brief period period of time. With more residents at home at this time, the City felt it was best to delay this program.
