Water Quality and Fire Hydrant Flushing Information
Periodically residents may see Public Works employees “flushing” fire hydrants. Although it appears to waste water, this is an important preventive maintenance activity. Flushing the water system on a routine basis removes sediment from the lines and keeps the entire distribution system refreshed. There are several miles of water lines throughout our service area and it is our policy to flush the entire system semi-annually.
Therefore, please be aware that as a result of the flushing procedure:
1. Residents in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of
2. 2. Residents should also use water line preventive maintenance in their own home.
3. If you have further questions or concerns, please call our office at 804-561-4565.
We are responsible for overseeing any and all construction projects that concern county owned property. Along with our engineering firm, we oversee all aspects of construction projects, from advertisement to project completion.
