Fall Hydrant Flushing Schedule


– Beginning August 30 and finishing September 30, 2021, Carbon Cliff Public Works will flush all
hydrants within the Village of Carbon Cliff to make sure they are in good working order. Flushing hydrants removes
any sediment that has built up within the distribution system. The schedule below will let you know when we will be
in your area. Flushing will be done between the hours of 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
The Village recommends that you do NOT do laundry during the scheduled times hydrants are flushed in your area.
Hydrant flushing can stir up rust and you do not want that in your washing machine. If there is any discoloration in
your faucet water, please let it run for a few minutes, preferably from the tub spout. This should clear up your water
and remove any remaining rust and dirt particles. Once you have clear water in your faucet, it is safe to do laundry.
Residents may wish to run a rinse cycle, without clothing, in your washing machine before doing laundry. Hydrant
flushing is a good time of year to remove and clean the screens on your faucets if they are prone to calcium, lime, and
rust buildup. The water is safe to drink during this time. View Schedule Here
