City of Red Wing

Spring Hydrant Flushing to Begin Monday, June 11th

Friday, June 8 2012 12:00 AM
The City of Red Wing routinely flushed hydrants and water mains twice per year. However, the new Water Treatment Facilities have improved the water quality in Red Wing, and as a result the need to flush the hydrants has been reduced to ONCE per year. Some areas such as dead-end streets may be flushed multiple times during the year depending on the specific needs of the area.

Hydrant flushing is done to maintain water quality, remove accumulated rust from water mains and to ensure that the hydrants are working properly. Typically dead end lines have a higher potential for iron build-up due to a lower volume of flow.

Low Level & Western Intermediate System will be flushed Monday, June 11th thru Friday, June 15th.

Intermediate System will be flushed Monday, June 18th thru Wednesday, June 20th

Pioneer Road Reservoir Area will be flushed Tuesday, June 19th and Wednesday, June 20th
