Fire Hydrant Flushing

Dear J.C.S.D Customers,

JCSD staff will be flushing Fire Hydrants on May 17th- May19th. Hydrant flushing is preventative maintenance for fire flow, sediment in water lines, and for fresh safe drinking water. There may be a temporary drop in water pressure during flushing; if it occurs after flushing, check your faucet and washer screens for trapped debris. Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant fluching. If this happens, run your cold tap water for a few minutes until the water is clears. If it doesn't clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. If water is discolored, customers should avoid washing clothes until the water clears. 

Thank You

JCSD Staff
