Sioux Falls To Begin Flushing Fire Hydrants

April 22, 2014, 4:32 AM

Sioux Falls To Begin Flushing Fire Hydrants

Water division crews in Sioux Falls are scheduled to begin flushing fire hydrants across the city.

The work is expected to start Wednesday and will last about six weeks. Crews will begin in the northern end of the city and continue south.

City officials say the benefits to flushing include clearing the water mains of sediments and ensuring the fire hydrants are operational.

The hydrants will be flushed only on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., except for those downtown, which will be flushed between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Officials say residents of areas were work has begun should check the cold tap water for clarity before doing laundry. Water discoloration due to flushing doesn't pose a health threat and can be used, but could cause staining.
