Hydrant Flushing Underway
Hydrant Flushing Underway…City crews have started flushing hydrants throughout Edina and should be finished by Friday, May 18. Hydrant flushing will take place 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Due to the flushing, it is inevitable that some residents will receive rust-colored water that could stain laundry, but it is safe to drink. You should check for signs of discoloration prior to washing clothes. If the water is discolored when you turn on your tap, simply run the water until it is clear. Because the water system is a “single-pressure zone,” it is possible that rust-colored water problems will occur in any area of the City while flushing is occurring.
