Flushing Notice


Fire Hydrant Flushing

Greenfield Water would like to let everyone know we are planning to start our fall fire hydrant flushing on September 13th, 2021. Our first target area is for the southeast side of downtown. From there we will be flushing along Tague Street and everything south of Tague to Weber Road. Customers in these areas and areas around downtown may experience discolored water. Our flushing will take place during regular business hours. Flushing Signs will be setup in the areas we are flushing.

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.
