Fire Hydrant Flushing Notice Spring 2013

Beginning May 10th through June 10th, Milton Water Utility will flush all fire hydrants in the City of Milton to make sure they are in good working order and to help flush sediment out of the distribution system.

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 Water Department at (608) 868-6905 or Department of Public Works at 608-868-6914 (Monday through Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.).
