Annual Hydrant Flushing

The Obetz Utilities Department will begin the annual fire hydrant flushing on Monday, October 18th. Hydrant flushing will start on Monday and continue through Friday, October 22nd. Flushing will occur between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

Fire hydrant flushing may cause temporary inconveniences such as a reduction in water pressure and discolored water. Discolored water is not a threat to the public’s health; however, it will stain laundry and if consumed may have an unpleasant taste. To prevent these things from happening we ask that during this process you do not wash laundry and have plenty of drinking water on hand. We also ask for residents to ensure that their vehicles are away from the hydrants.
