Rochester to start flushing hydrants 4/25

The City of Rochester will be flushing fire hydrants beginning the week of April 25 and will run through June 3. The flushing will be scheduled from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. and should be completed within six weeks.

Annual flushing is necessary to provide better water quality. 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 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., at 332-4096.
