Hydrant Flushing 2020
Concord General Services’ Highway and Utilities Division will begin flushing hydrants throughout Concord starting on Monday, May 18, 2020. For the next several weeks, three crews will be going out to different areas of the city to flush hydrants as part of required routine maintenance. This annual practice removes any sediment from pipes in the water distribution system and helps to sustain Concord’s water quality and check water pressure of the area. Concord water customers should avoid doing laundry when hydrant flushing is occurring in their area. Customers may experience low water pressure and discolored water during their scheduled flushing time. If discoloration occurs, customers are advised to run their tap water on cold until the water runs clear. Concord water customers are encouraged to visit the City of Concord’s website to view flushing schedules and find out when flushing will be occurring in their area to plan accordingly.
