Seasonal Hydrant Flushing 10/9/23 – 10/13/23

Public Works Notice For October 9th – October 13th

The Richmond Public Works Department will be performing seasonal hydrant flushing throughout town. This is a controlled procedure that is vital to the general maintenance of the Village’s water distribution system.

During hydrant flushing, some loss of pressure and discoloration of water may occur. The water may temporarily appear rust-colored because the iron and other mineral deposits in the water mains get stirred up. There is no health hazard associated with discolored water. Water is safe to use and consume during hydrant flushing, however it may stain laundry. Residents are urged to avoid doing any laundry when hydrants are scheduled to be flushed in your area. If water is discolored, wait until flushing has subsided in your area then run a cold water tap until the water runs clear.

If you have any questions regarding the hydrant flushing program, or when flushing will occur in your neighborhood, please contact Richmond Public Works at
