The Department of Public Works is currently facilitating the following construction work and services throughout the city. Please scroll down to the map below for further details.
Water Distribution - Hydrant Flushing
The Division of Water Distribution will commence flushing fire hydrants within the City, starting Monday, April 18, 2021. Periodic flushing of water mains is required to ensure high quality of water. Crews will move through zones in consecutive order, starting with Zone 1. It takes approximately one week to complete each zone.
Residents and business owners should use caution during this flushing period, as turbulence may occur in the water main and travel into customer water pipes. If this happens, flush the cold water line until the water runs clear. (Turbulence is cloudy water, sometimes brownish red in color that may stain or discolor clothing and food products.)
All questions about hydrant flushing and water quality may be directed to Big Island Water Works at 419.627.5805.
