Fire Hydrant Flushing

FIRE HYDRANT FLUSHING NOTICE RESIDENTS OF CALLAWAY: THE CITY WILL BE FLUSHING HYDRANTS CITYWIDE BEGINNING JUNE 6, 2022 THROUGH JUNE 10, 2022. THE CITY FLUSHES FIRE HYDRANTS TO ENSURE THE HYDRANTS ARE PROPERLY WORKING, AND GATHERS VALUABLE INFORMATION TO THE OVERALL CONDITION OF THE WATER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM. HYDRANT FLUSHING REMOVES IRON DEPOSITS AND SEDIMENTS FROM THE SYSTEM. YOU MAY EXPERIENCE SOME WATER DISCOLORATION WHEN HYDRANTS ARE BEING FLUSHED IN YOUR IMMEDIATE NEIGHBORHOOD. ONCE THE HYDRANT FLUSHING IS COMPLETE, IF YOU EXPERIENCE DISCOLORED WATER, LET YOUR WATER RUN TO EMPTY THE LINES OF SEDIMENT. THE WATER SHOULD CLEAR AFTER THIS PROCESS. EVEN THOUGH THE WATER MAY HAVE SOME COLOR IT IS STILL SAFE TO USE BUT MAY STAIN SOME CLOTHES IF LAUNDRY IS DONE BEFORE THE WATER ACTUALLY CLEARS COMPLETELY. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, YOU MAY CONTACT CALLAWAY FIRE DEPARTMENT AT (850) 871-5300.
