April 27 - May 8, 2015

The Town of Front Royal will be flushing fire hydrants throughout the community the weeks of April 27 - May 8, 2015 between the hours of 7:00am and 3:00pm. Hydrant flushing helps to keep water lines free of deposit buildup and to check the mechanical operation of fire hydrants. Bi-annual flushing is necessary to provide better water quality and fire protection. Daytime flushing allows crews to perform minor repairs to hydrants to provide continued operation.

Customers may experience periods of lower water pressure and/or discoloration of their water during flushing. If you experience discolored water, run your cold water tap until it clears. During periods of discoloration, postpone washing clothes and limit your use of hot water until the cold water clears.

This hydrant flushing will also result in possible water on the roadways. Road travelers are asked to take extra care during this time.

More Information: Department of Environmental Services at (540)635-7819, Monday - Friday, 7:00am - 3:30pm
