Water department to flush hydrants
GREENFIELD — Greenfield’s water department is flushing hydrants now through May throughout the city.
When hydrants are being flushed, residents might see discolored water as the city’s water system is cleared. City officials say discolored water poses no threat to residents.
The city’s water department recommends residents run cold water in their bathtub for 10 to 15 minutes after hydrants in their service area are flushed.
The department will post signs, update the city’s website and post on Facebook to alert residents when hydrants in their area will be flushed.
Should residents be concerned about their quality of their water, information about it is posted in a consumer confidence reported on the water utility tab of the city’s website, greenfieldin.org. The water Greenfield provides to businesses and residents exceeds federal and state standards, said water superintendent Chuck Gill.
