Hydrant Flushing and Valve Testing Continues
Targeted quarterly flushing of the Clifton hydrant began on March 16, 2023 and will continue, weather permitting, until March 27, 2023.
Flushing will take place between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm on weekdays.
The hydrants are flushed to remove sediment and check water flow, to ensure adequate water pressure. During the flushing process, customers may experience temporary discoloration of their tap water and reduced water pressure. This discoloration is caused by sediment and minerals that have accumulated in the water mains over time. PVWC advises residents to refrain from doing laundry during the flushing period and to wait until the water runs clear before drinking or cooking with it.
