The Town of Greater Napanee, Infrastructure Services Department will be flushing water mains and testing fire hydrants throughout the spring and summer season. This work may cause rust coloured water to appear from taps at or near the area of work.  If this occurs, remove the aerator from the tap and let the water run for a few minutes, after which it should run clear. After it is running clear, replace the aerator.

Hydrant Flushing FAQ's 

Why is hydrant flushing necessary?
Hydrant Flushing is a necessary maintenance process that removes particles, minerals, and sediment that may form over time inside underground water pipes. Hydrants must be flushed and inspected annually to confirm that water supply systems, including valves and hydrants, are in good working order. 
What should I do when hydrants are being flushed in my area?
 If you see a crew flushing a hydrant in your area, avoid running tap water and using the washing machine or the dishwasher until the flushing is complete. 
What should I do after flushing?
Hydrant flushing may stir up sediment in water pipes, which can cause your tap water to temporarily appear rust coloured. If you encounter discoloured water when hydrant flushing is taking place, simply remove the aerator from your tap and flush the cold water for several minutes. This should clear any remaining discoloured water from your pipes and fixtures.  In some cases, slight discolouration of water might last for a few hours.  This discolouration only affects the appearance of the water and does not affect water quality.
