Hydrant flushing schedule

hydrant-2838016_1280

The City of Troy’s annual fire hydrant flushing project will begin in May. By performing a controlled release of water from the hydrants, Troy’s Fire Department ensures adequate water flow is available to fire fighters, residents and businesses. Flushing also helps maintain the City’s water clarity and quality by clearing iron and mineral deposits from the water mains.

The City’s water is always safe to drink. However, if you notice a brownish tint in your tap water during your area’s hydrant flushing period, run the water for two to three minutes or until the water is clear.
