[ARCHIVED] Annual Hydrant Flushing Operations

Starting Monday, May 9, 2011 and continuing through the end of June 2011, the Town of Erie Department of Public Works (DPW) maintenance crews will conduct annual flushing operations of the Town’s fire hydrants. The flushing operations allow hydrants to be tested for adequate water flow & pressure and identified for maintenance or replacement. Most importantly, flushing enhances water quality allowing any sediment in the water mains to work its way out of the system.

Flushing operations will be conducted one neighborhood at a time during the hours of 8:00 am and 3:00 pm Monday through Friday. Operations will begin in the Arapahoe Ridge neighborhood on May 9th. Please visit the Construction Projects page on the Town’s website for ongoing updates and learn when flushing operations will begin in your neighborhood.

Though some residents may experience temporary pressure fluctuations or notice air bubbles in their water system during these operations, the water remains safe to drink.

Residents are encouraged to maintain a three foot clear space around fire hydrants adjacent to their properties and to be aware of any items (receptacles, landscaping, etc…) in the right-of-way that would be affected during operations. Crews will not be responsible for misplacement of such items resulting from operations.

Contact:For more information on this project, please contactTim Ream at 303-926-2881.
