Stanford Waterworks to flush hydrants

The City of Stanford Waterworks will perform its biannual flushing of all fire hydrants on Monday, Sept. 24 through Friday, Sept. 28. Hydrant flushing is done to remove deposits and sediment from main water lines. Hydrant flushing may cause low pressure and discoloration of your household water in or near the areas being flushed. Customers are advised to check their water for signs of discoloration prior to doing laundry, or to refrain from doing laundry on these dates. If you notice discoloration in the water, let it run until it clears before doing laundry; usually this takes less than five minutes. If laundry appears stained, keep the articles wet and rewash them using a rust-removing compound. Do not use bleach on stained laundry as it will “set” the stain. Please be assured the water is safe during this time.
