Fire Hydrant Flushing in Geneseo


Geneseo Water Division personnel will begin the hydrant-flushing program the night of Sunday October 8th.  Hydrant flushing occurs between 10 pm and 6 am.  Hydrant-flushing will end the morning of Friday October 13th.  Water Division personnel will operate and verify proper operation of all the fire hydrants in the system.  Personnel will start flushing by the Iron Removal Plants and work out into the system from the north side of town to the south side.  Flushing program is also used to remove deposits and sediment that can accrue in the water mains. 

Customers may experience some discoloration of their water after the flushing has started.  Most of time, this will clear up by running water on the cold side for a few minutes.  We do not anticipate any problems but recommend that you refrain from doing white laundry while flushing is being done in your area.  If you have any questions, please call 944-4243 between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm.
