City flushing fire hydrants March 24-28

City of Port Orchard crews will flush fire hydrants during the week of March 24-28.

City of Port Orchard crews will flush fire hydrants during the week of March 24-28.

The McCormick Woods area will not be flushed during this time.

This is a semi-annual inspection which allows Public Works Department crews to flow each hydrant and to perform preventive maintenance. The individual hydrant will be turned on to allow full flow.

People will notice water flowing along the street at times. In addition, the large flow of water will stir up any naturally occurring sediment in the water mains. The annual inspection flushes the sediment from the water system.

It is possible that customers will notice sediment in the water from faucets during this week. If this occurs, people are advised to turn off the inside faucet, then allow water to run from an outside hose bib or the cold water tap of the bathtub until the water runs clear again. Do not use the hot water tap to clear the water. The water should only have to run a few minutes before it is clear again.

The City Treasurer’s office will apply a small credit to the water bill at the request of the ratepayer when this is necessary.

For questions during the process, contact the Public Works Department at 360-876-4991.
