City of Huntingburg Water Department to Flush Hydrants

The City of Huntingburg’s Water Department is conducting their fall hydrant flushing season beginning Tuesday, September 8, 2015.  The proposed flushing cycle will be: south of 6th Street and west of Main Street from Tuesday, September 8 through Friday, September 11; north of 6th Street and east of Main Street from Monday, September 14 through Friday, September 18; south of 6th Street and east of Main Street from Monday, September 21 through Friday, September 25; and north of 6th Street and west of Main Street from Monday, September 28 through Friday, October 2. 

Flushing is performed to improve water quality and is a necessary preventative maintenance activity for proper waterline function. Although it may appear to waste water, flushing improves pressures and flow rates needed for fire protection, aids in maintaining proper valve and hydrant operation and helps to provide better overall water service to our customers.  

Water will remain safe to drink; however, special care and attention is recommended, especially before doing laundry.  Customers are advised to run cold water through their taps for 5 to 7 minutes to clear any discoloration in the water that may adversely affect laundry items.  The City of Huntingburg is not responsible for the cleaning and/or replacement of those items.

Flushing times will typically be Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Locations may vary from day to day.
