Fall Hydrant Flushing


Cavendish Municipal Water System
Weekdays Wednesday, October 20 through Friday, October 22 , 2010

During the hours of 9AM to 5PM

System users are reminded that:

Flushing hydrants may cause temporary discoloration and turbidity of the water. We apologize for any inconvenience to our users, however this very important system maintenance procedure must be conducted each spring and fall. The flushing program allows the pipes to be purged and the hydrants checked for proper operation.

Users are advised to avoid drinking the water or washing clothes (especially whites) while discoloration is in evidence. Following
hydrant flushing in your area, users should be run cold water until it clears before resuming normal use. It is also advisable to flush individual water heaters after the water clears following a hydrant flush in your area.

Thank you for your cooperation.
