Annual Hydrant Flushing

The Obetz Utilities Department will begin the annual fire hydrant flushing on Monday, November 7th. Hydrant flushing will start on Monday and continue through Thursday, November 10th. 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.
