Fire Hydrant Flushing


Spring fire hydrant flushing for the City of Greenfield’s is scheduled for June 1st.

Beginning Location: The north side of the city (North of McKenzie to 300 N.)
Watch for Hydrant Flushing signs in your area and drive carefully if you see water utility crews working.

This is a standard maintenance practice in the water industry to insure clean, safe water by:
• Improving water quality
• Assess fire hydrant condition
• Test fire flow rate
• Monitor water system

Fire hydrant flushing process may cause:
• Low water pressure
• Temporarily discolored water from minerals and sediments that have accumulated in the water main.

What to do if your water becomes temporarily discolored:
• Avoid doing laundry while hydrant flushing is occurring.
• run your cold tap for about 15 minutes or until the water runs clear
• If you have a water softener and are experiencing discolored water, place the unit into regeneration or cleaning mode after hydrant flushing is completed in your area.

Greenfield Water Utility appreciates your cooperation with this vital, maintenance project. If you have any questions, contact the Water Utility office 317-477-4350.
