Fire Hydrant Flushing Notice

The Milton Water Utility started flushing all fire hydrants in the City of Milton on Monday, May 14th to make sure they are in good working order and to help flush sediment out of the distribution system.  The process will continue through Friday, June 1st.

If you notice flushing in your area, you may see discoloration in your faucet water.  Let it run for a few minutes, preferably from your outside hose connection, and it will clear up.  The water is safe to drink.  You may not want to do laundry on the day hydrants are flushed in your area.

If you have any questions, please call the City of Milton Water Department at (608) 868-6905 or City of Milton Department of Public Works at (608) 868-6914.
