CITY OF RIVER FALLS: 2019 Fire Hydrant Flushing

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 6:08pm

CITY OF RIVER FALLS - NOTICE
ANNUAL FIRE HYDRANT FLUSHING
(WEATHER PERMITTING)
City fire hydrants will be flushed during the hours of 5:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. starting June 17th through the first week of July, 2019.
Periodically flushing fire hydrants is an important preventative maintenance activity to ensure the integrity of the water system, confirm hydrant operations, meet DNR mandates, and maintain and deliver quality water to our customers. While flushing hydrants near your home, you may experience slight varying water pressure and temporary discoloration of the water in your home. This discoloration is harmless, and generally consists of precipitates (oxidized iron) which do not affect the safety of water consumption. If you notice that your water is discolored, you can clear this issue by running water faucets inside your home until the water clears. Be sure to check water clarity before doing laundry. If water does not clear, or you have any further questions, please contact:
