Hydrant Flushing

Public Works Worker Flushing a Hydrant

Fire hydrants are flushed as part of the City’s routine water system maintenance program to maintain water quality and regulatory compliance with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). Hydrants are flushed in sections on a rotating basis.


Flushing hydrants helps keep water from stagnating, and sediment and minerals from collecting in water lines.
