Hydrant Flushing Program

The Town of Greenfield will begin flushing fire hydrants on Monday, March 28, 2016 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The tentative schedule is as follows:

Weather Dependent:  If weather is inclement the first day then flushing will start second day, etc.

 

Note:  Please be aware that your tap water may be a little discolored in the afternoon.  We encourage homeowners to run the water to clear up any discoloration prior to drinking the water or doing laundry.

 

Hydrants are flushed for two reasons.  First, it ensures high quality water by removing any sediment, particularly from dead ends, that may have entered the system from rusting pipework, water main breaks etc.  Second, during flushing every fire hydrant in Town is exercised.  This is good for the hydrant and is also a means to identify malfunctioning hydrants so they can be repaired before being needed in an emergency situation.
