Fire Hydrant Flushing October 2 - 6

During the week of October 2 - 6 (Monday through Friday), the Bellbrook Service Department will be flushing fire hydrants between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm


The purpose of water system flushing is to verify the safe operation of hydrants and valves, remove accumulated sediment and mineral buildup in the bottom of water mains, flush stale water from dead-end streets, restore/help maintain a chlorine residual throughout the water system, and continue to maintain a clean water supply.  


The water flushing may result in temporary discoloration of the water and a possible reduction in water pressure. Water discoloration is not a health risk. The Service Department recommends that residents consider restricting their water usage and setting water softeners to bypass. The discolored water may stain laundry (especially materials of lighter color) and can possibly stain plumbing fixtures. Therefore, please avoid doing laundry during the noted flushing period. 


Before washing clothes, including during times after the hours stated in this notice, please check the cold water for possible discoloration. If the water is discolored, let the cold water run for a minute (or two) and see if it begins clearing. If the water does not clear at that time, try again later. Unfortunately, the City cannot guarantee the possibility of discoloration even during the evenings and other times of the day as the water system has been disturbed. The City also cannot guarantee when a specific neighborhood's hydrants will be flushed. Therefore, please check your water carefully before doing laundry and inspect the laundry before it is dried. If discoloration of laundry occurs, a special detergent is available from the City.
