Water Flushing Program

Flushing Sign PhotoThe District’s annual Water Main Flushing Program is scheduled to begin in November and be completed in Mid-April. We flush our system to remove sediment from water mains throughout the District. The Program is part of the District’s on-going water quality and system maintenance work.

Residents will not be out of water during flushing; however, some residents in the immediate vicinity may experience low pressure and temporary discoloration of their water.  We recommend not turning on your water between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. unless it’s necessary. This includes not running appliances using water, such as dishwashers and washing machines. If you notice discolored water in your private system, turn on each cold water faucet and allow the water to run until it is clear again and flush each toilet two times. 

Crews place flushing signs in the neighborhoods 1-2 weeks prior to flushing the area. Work is typically done from 7:30 AM – 4:30 PM, Monday – Friday.

Please call the District Office at 503.665.4179 with any questions.
