NID’s annual flushing program underway

May contain: glove, clothing, pickup truck, vehicle, truck, transportation, person, path, vegetation, plant, hat, worker, woodland, land, outdoors, tree, nature, fire hydrant, and hydrant

NID has begun to clean the District’s treated water distribution system through its annual flushing program.

During the process, the District’s crew will tap fire hydrants, allowing water to flow through main lines at a higher velocity to wash away any residue that may have collected through the year. Water will be dechlorinated and flushed from the hydrants up to 400 gallons a minute.

The work will continue through March of 2023, starting in Cascade Shores and ending in North Auburn.
