Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant flushing is the process of cleaning or “scouring” the interior of water distribution mains (pipes) by sending a rapid flow of water through the mains. Hydrant flushing also tests the hydrants to make sure adequate flow and pressure is available.

Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears. If it doesn’t clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. You should avoid washing clothes until the water clears. Afterwards, if you notice a change in water flow, it may be necessary to clean your sink faucet screen of trapped sediment.

The brown or discolored water, caused by rust or sediment build-up, is not harmful to use or drink according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Ingesting rust from a water source does not present adverse health effects.

Important Information for Andrews Wastewater Customers

We are seeing the following items being flushed into our system:

  • Rags
  • Disposable diapers, diaper liners, baby wipes
  • Q-tips
  • Grease
  • Candy wrappers
  • Bottle caps
  • Cigarette butts
  • Toothpicks
  • Tampons
  • Applicators
  • Condoms
  • Syringes

The above items should not be flushed into any sanitary sewer system, even though the manufacturer may say their product is  “sewer and septic safe” on the box. These items must be removed at some point. We ask for your help in keeping these items out of our system, which in turn will cut down on costly repair bills, down time, and possible failure of lift stations or clogged sewers belonging to the town (or possibly your own sewer line).

Thank you for your cooperation!
