Fire Hydrant Flushing Begins

The City of Springfield Public Works Department will be flushing fire hydrants beginning Monday, October 4, 2021, with an estimated end date of Thursday, October 14, 2021. Crews will be working through out the city between 6:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday. The flushing process often results in cloudy or discolored water; please be mindful of this while doing laundry or other tasks that could be affected however, the water is always safe during this process. If you see discolored water from your taps, we recommend that you run the cold water in your home or business. Flushing hydrants and water mains provides several benefits to our water system users. Regular flushing provides water of the highest quality to our customers. It also allows our crews to verify that our water system is operating properly and identify areas that require repair and/or maintenance. It also ensures that fire hydrants are ready for use should the Fire Department need them. Please contact the Public Services Director if you have any questions, phone: (269) 441-9277 or email:
