Water Main and Fire Hydrant Flushing
Water Main and Fire Hydrant Flushing
Park City’s Water Department is scheduled to conduct their annual water main flushing program, starting this week for roughly a month. Flushing will occur in Old Town, Park Meadows, and other areas throughout the City. Crews will work Tuesday–Thursday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
While it may appear that water is being wasted during this process, it is the most efficient way to clean the water main infrastructure. Flushing water from a hydrant at a high velocity removes any deposits or accumulated sediments from the interior of the pipe to ensure customers continue to receive the highest quality of water.
Water samples are also taken during the flushing process, allowing the Water Quality Department to continually gather information on water chemistry throughout the distribution system. The high-velocity flows are also tested to ensure there will be ample flow in the event of a fire.
During this process, customers may notice episodes of decreased water pressure or discoloration of their water. If flushing takes place in your neighborhood, Park City Water recommends running an outdoor tap or cold-water faucet for five minutes to ensure that the water service is free of any residual sediment or discolored water.
Crews will be proactive in avoiding any traffic disruption or adverse impacts on our local ponds, streams, and rivers. Other pooling may occur in certain areas of town—crews will do their best to mitigate this.
