WHY FLUSH WATER MAINS:
Flushing or “scouring” water mains helps to clear our distribution pipes of sediment and mineral build up. Hydrants are systematically opened to increase flows, allowing us to “flush” minerals and deposits from the pipes, this practice not only extends the life of our water mains but improves water quality.
