Fire hydrant flushing is a routine maintenance process where hydrants are turned on to allow water to flow for several hours. Flushing is necessary to remove sediment and iron compounds from water mains and to circulate the water to help prevent stagnant water problems from developing. Throughout the year, you may notice water running along the street where water department personnel are flushing hydrants. Hydrants are often left unattended, but don’t be alarmed; personnel will return to turn them off once the flushing process is finished.

A list of scheduled hydrant flushing and testing is maintained on this web page and will be routinely updated. Please check this list often to learn if hydrant flushing is scheduled in your neighborhood. If you notice a leaking hydrant not on the schedule it may in fact need repair. Please report it to our customer service department at (931) 553-2497.


It’s also important to know that residents in the immediate vicinity of hydrant flushing may experience temporary discoloration of their water. The discoloration consists primarily of harmless silt and air and does not affect the safety of the water. If you experience discoloration in your water after hydrant flushing in your neighborhood, clear the pipes in your home by running all water faucets for a few minutes.
