Hydrant Flushing

The Wayzata Utility Department will begin flushing water mains and fire hydrants from Sunday Evening, April 16th through Thursday, April 27th, weather permitting.  The Utility Department will complete all flushing in the evening and night hours starting at 10:00 p.m. and stopping the following morning at 6:00 a.m. to alleviate discolored water issue’s this process has caused residents and commercial businesses during the day.  Traffic volumes and safety issues are also much more manageable during this timeframe. The purpose of this process is to remove any particulate matter that may have built up in the water mains over the year and also to ensure that all fire hydrants on the water system are operating properly in the event of a fire. As this flushing process may cause the water to become discolored, residents are advised to be observant while washing clothes until after the flushing has been completed.  If discolored water is present, run the cold water faucets, only, until the water clears. The list of areas below is a general guideline as to where we will be flushing each evening.
