Annual hydrant flushing in Bay Village
Our annual hydrant flushing is underway and will be completed, weather permitting, by early to mid-June. Each year we test and flush every hydrant in the city to ensure proper function, pressure and maintenance. As in past years, we will keep residents aware of our daily progress through the city, as we work from the east side of the city to the west side of the city, by posting temporary signs. We also notify city hall each morning of our work area for the day. Please note that hydrants are flushed from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Since hydrant flushing sometimes loosens some of the rust in the water mains, you may notice rusty or discolored water when we are flushing in your area. If this happens, let your cold water run for a few minutes until it is clear again. Should any rusty water end up accidentally in your laundry, the Fire Department has a supply of rust remover packets. Call 871-1214 for more information or just stop in at the Fire Station.
