Hydrant Flushing

hydrant

The City of Groveport will be flushing fire hydrants between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. from September 17th to September 28th.


If you see a hydrant being flushed on your street, avoid running tap water, washing machine, or dishwasher until flushing in the area is complete.


After hydrant flushing, tap water may come out with sediment that causes discoloration.  Although a slight discoloration may last for a few hours, it only affects appearance of the water and poses no health risk.


If you encounter discolored water, shut your water off and wait several minutes. After waiting, check the clarity by running cold water for a few minutes to allow the new water to flow into pipes.  If the water is still discolored, wait a few minutes and check again.  In some cases, it may be a few hours before water is completely clear.


Avoid washing laundry during the scheduled flushing hours.  After hydrants in your area have been flushed, wait until water runs clear from your tap, then begin with a load of dark laundry before doing lights or whites.  If water pressure or volume seems low, check faucet screens for trapped particles.


For questions or concerns, please call the City of Groveport Municipal Building at 614-836-5301
