Fall Hydrant Flushing

The City of Chenoa’s hydrant flushing program is scheduled for the beginning of October. Please be on the look out for notifications of when it begins next month.

Every fall and spring the City flushes out its water mains through the fire hydrants. This clears the water mains of sediment and minerals that settles in water mains over time. Staff also verifies that the hydrants are in good working order. During flushing, deposits from water lines may create a yellowish to brownish discoloration of water in homes near flushing areas. While this water is safe for drinking, it may discolor laundry. If you are experiencing discolored water, we advise you to run cold water until lines run clear. We also advise you to wash laundry on Saturdays and Sundays until flushing is complete.
