Hydrant Flushing starting 9/27

Published on

The City of Rochester will be flushing fire hydrants beginning the week of September 27, 2020, and will continue through November 12, 2020. The majority of flushing will be scheduled from 11pm to 6am and should be completed within 6 weeks.

As a result of flushing, some slight discoloration may be noticed in your water.  If discoloration occurs it may clear up if you run your cold water tap for several minutes.  Customers may also experience low water pressure while flushing is in progress. Customers are urged to check their water for these types of issues before bathing or doing laundry.

If residents have any questions or concerns, or if discoloration will not clear, please contact the Rochester Public Works Department during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 7am to 4pm, at 332-4096.
