The City of St. Johns Water Department personnel will be flushing all fire hydrants in the City.
The purpose is to insure us that the hydrants are operable and also to clean the water mains of rust and sediment that develops over a period of time.
During the process the water could become slightly colored; however it should clear up shortly after the flushing.
Flushing of the hydrants is done in spring and fall.
The schedule for flushing will be:
– State St. North from September 28th thru October 9th, 2015
– State St South from October 12th thru October 23rd, 2015
Flushing will be done between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
If you have any questions, please call the Water Department at 224-8944 ext. 235 or ext. 282 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
