[ARCHIVED] Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant Flushing

The Roseville Public Works Department is hard at work. Each year, the city flushes all 1,750 fire hydrants to make sure they work properly and to flush out mineral deposits from the distribution system.

Hydrants are flushed each spring after the city sweeps the streets of sand and debris that has accumulated over the winter months.

On rare occasions, the water may be discolored when you turn on the tap following hydrant flushing in your neighborhood. If this occurs, let the cold water run until it is clear. Although the discolored water may have a mineral taste, it is safe to drink. Be sure to check the quality of the water before doing laundry when hydrants are being flushed in your neighborhood. If stains from the water appear on laundered clothes, do not dry them. Wash the clothes again to remove stains. 

No one other than authorized city employees may use fire hydrants or interfere with the water system. If you see someone interfering with a hydrant, call Roseville Police at 651-767-0640.

City Code prohibits shrubs or trees or other objects within three feet of a fire hydrant. Please keep fire hydrants free of anything that could hide them from view.
