Fall Hydrant Flushing
Clive Public Works crews are currently flushing fire hydrants. Hydrant flushing will continue until freezing temperatures arrive. The best way to ensure hydrants are functioning properly is to flush them annually.
If you see a crew flushing hydrants in your neighborhood, you may experience a temporary fluctuation in your water pressure. In some instances the flushing operation can cause sediment in the mains to become unsettled, you may notice a discoloration in your water. THE WATER IS SAFE. The sediment can be easily cleared from the water lines in your home by running the water for 2-3 minutes.
