Fire hydrant flushing begins April 19
The Wayzata Utility Department will be flushing water mains and fire hydrants throughout the City between Sunday, April 19 and Thursday, April 30, weather permitting. Utility crews will flush hydrants in the evening between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.. Flushing fire hydrants at night minimizes the inconvenience of discolored water issues that this process may cause for residents and businesses. Additionally, lower traffic volumes at night provide a safer environment for both motorists and for City staff working in the road.
Fire hydrants are flushed to remove any particulate matter that may have built up in the water system over the year and to ensure all fire hydrants connected to the water system are operating properly for use by the Fire Department. Because the flushing process may temporarily cause your 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 cold water faucets only until the water runs clear. A list and map of areas shown below is a general guideline as to where we will be flushing each evening.
