Notice of Fire Hydrant and Valve Exercising Operations

Hydrant Flushing

You may experience a slight loss in water pressure, air bubbles (cloudy appearance) and/or temporary discoloration.

Beginning in June and continuing throughout the summer, City workers will be implementing the Fire Hydrant and Valve Exercising Operation and Maintenance Program. Fire hydrant flushing will clean out water distribution mains, remove accumulated sediment, and make sure our fire hydrants are operating properly.

 

Water main valve exercising will also help clean out deposits around valve seats and make sure valves operate smoothly and properly.

 

The City of Snohomish Water Division will be flushing fire hydrants and exercising valves throughout the City beginning in June, and continue through late summer.  A technician may contact you to move property that could be damaged by flowing water.   During these operations, you may experience a slight loss in water pressure, air bubbles (cloudy appearance) and/or temporary discoloration.  Flushing your private system through your cold water faucets can help clear up these conditions.  Even though your water may manifest one or more of these symptoms, it is still safe to drink.  This is only a temporary condition. 


For more information, please contact Joe Hopper, Water Division Lead at  (360) 282-3182.
