Hydrant Flushing Program

Annual Hydrant Flushing Program Hydrant

The City of Westerville, Department of Public Service will be starting their annual hydrant flushing program beginning Sunday, April 24, 2016. The program will run around the clock for ten days in order to flush the more than 2300 hydrants in the City’s system. All hydrants are flushed once a year to help clear the water lines of particulates that may build up over time. Crews also check the hydrants and valves for any operational issues which need to be addressed in order to keep the hydrants in good working order.

Residents may notice a brownish tint to their water after the hydrants in their neighborhood have been flushed. If so, run the water through a tap for a few minutes and it should clear up. Residents may also want to run their washer through a rinse cycle once before doing laundry.

Please contact the Westerville Department of Public Service with any questions, concerns, or help in determining when hydrants will be flushed. The Service Department is open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., 614.901.6740.
