  Fire Hydrant Flushing

Centralia Public Works Water Department employees will begin flushing fire hydrants on Monday, October 10, 2016.  This process will continue through the City for approximately three weeks.  Hydrant flushing removes sediment from the main water lines and introduces fresh water to dead-end lines.

The flushing process requires water to be expelled in large quantities at a high velocity from the mains through fire hydrants.  Drivers and pedestrians in the Centralia area are asked to use caution when they observe water flowing from fire hydrants.

Households should check their water supply before washing clothing or performing other water-using activities in order to keep turbid water from being used.  Customers may wish to conduct such activities before 7:30 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. during these three weeks to avoid times when water quality might be disturbed.

To find out when your area will be affected or for further information on flushing activity, please call Public Works at 330-7512.
