City of Jacksonville Flushing Hydrants

By Beth Anderson on June 15, 2023 at 10:29am

The Jacksonville Water Department along with the Jacksonville Fire Department
will begin flushing fire hydrants on July 10, 2023. The process starts each year
and continues until each hydrant has been flushed. The purpose is to ensure the
hydrants are in good working order.
Occasionally, residents may experience slight water discoloration and some loss of
pressure when the fire hydrants are being flushed in their area. During the period
of discoloration we suggest not to do light colored laundry. The water quality is
not affected by the process and the pressure is restored once the flushing is
complete. If discoloration is experienced, it should dissipate within a few hours.
Please call 479-4660 if you have any questions.
