Annual Hydrant Maintenance In Bay Village
Our annual hydrant maintenance season will begin, Wednesday, September 1st, 2021 and will be completed, weather permitting, by mid-October. Each year we test and flush out every hydrant in the city to ensure proper function, pressure, and maintenance.
Prior to September, we will post temporary signs at all the entrances to the City as a reminder. We will also notify city hall each morning of our work area for the day. Please note that hydrants are flushed from 8:30am to 3:30pm.
Since hydrant maintenance procedures can loosen some of the rust in the water mains, you may notice rusty or discolored water when we are flushing in your area. If this happens, let your cold water run for a few minutes until it is clear again. Should any rusty water end up accidentally in your laundry, the Fire Department will have a supply of rust remover packets. Call 871-1214 for more information or just stop in at the Fire Station.
