[ARCHIVED] Fire Hydrant Flushing

The Poolesville Water Department crews will be beginning the annual fire hydrant flushing maintenance program on April 10, 2017.  As a result of the flushing process, residents in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of their water.  This discoloration consists primarily of harmless silt and air and does not affect the safety of the water.  If you experience discoloration in your water after crews have been flushing in your neighborhood, clear the pipes in your home by running all water faucets for a few minutes. We also recommend that residents refrain from washing white clothes for at least 24 hours after the flushing.

Below is the neighborhood flushing schedule:

April 10                Elizabeth's Delight, TAMA, Wood at TAMA, Brightwell Crossing

April 11                Westerly, Meadowlark Manor, Hunter's Run

April 12                Fisher Avenue, Meadow Valley, Wootton Heights

April 13                Wesmond

April 14                Seneca Chase, Sumner Ridge, Stoney Springs
