HYDRANT FLUSHING FOR 2016
HYDRANT FLUSHING FOR JULY/AUGUST 2016
The Jamestown Water Department will be flushing hydrants during the next couple weeks as part of it's annual flushing and monitoring program. Hydrant flushing ensures adequate water pressure is available for fighting fires, and cleans the water mains of accumulated debris.
Hydrant flushing often results in rusty debris getting agitated and circulated within the water main. During this time there may be a rusty coloration coming out of taps. In this situation, let the water run until the coloration goes away. In the case of laundary, the water should be run for a minute to detect whether there is coloration.
Since these Particles of rust are always sitting in the main, and have been disinfected, it does not constitute a health hazard or a contamination of the main. Simply flush the tap until the coloration goes away.
We will be flushing hydrants on Fridays between 9am and 5pm.
If there is a concern about the quality of the water, or for questions and comments please email the water departement at firstname.lastname@example.org .
