Hydrant Flushing Week
Oct 2 @ 8:00 am – Oct 6 @ 4:00 pm
Hydrant Flushing Week

During the first week of October (2nd – 6th) Meskwaki Public Works will be conducting their biannual Hydrant Flushing week on the Meskwaki Settlement.

Hydrant Flushing is done twice a year to enhance water quality by flushing sediment from water mains, verifying the proper operation of hydrants and valves. It also ensures firefighting capability.

During hydrant flushing week please take note of these possible changes in your water and the additional information/tips on what to do after the hydrant flushing:

  • There may be a temporary drop in water pressure
  • Water may be rusty or cloudy. Discolored water IS NOT harmful and will clear up in a few hours.
  • Do not wash white laundry during this period – wait until both cold/hot water are running clear before laundering whites.
  • Avoid washing laundry during scheduled flushing times. Wait until the water runs clear at the tap, and then wash a load of dark clothes first.
  • If tap water is used during flushing, it could come out full of sediment that causes discoloration. If you encounter discoloration, run cold water for a few minutes allowing new water to work its way into your pipes. If the water is clear, its OK to use. If not, wait for a few minutes and check again. The discoloration only affects the appearance of the water; it does not affect the taste of quality.
  • If pressure or volume seems low, check your faucet screens for trapped particles.
