Hydrant Flushing Program

The Fire Hydrant Flushing program is a part of regular Authority operations and maintenance. The purpose is two-fold; to flush the water mains and to check fire hydrant operation.

Discolored water is sometimes a side effect of this ongoing maintenance program. We strongly suggest that all customers check their water and the flushing schedule link below, before laundering or using large quantities of water during this time.

If you experience discolored water or stained laundry, DO NOT CONTINUE TO USE THE WATER. Keep the laundry items damp until the water clears. Then use non-chlorine bleach to re launder. DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH. Soak the items for a few hours and re launder with your regular detergent and the non-chlorine bleach.

The following areas are currently scheduled for flushing.   More specific information is available by calling Customer Service at 412-931-3500 or 412-364-1257. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE AND MAY BE AFFECTED BY INCLEMENT WEATHER AND EMERGENCIES.  AS A REMINDER, PLEASE POST A NOTICE BY YOUR LAUNDRY AREA.
