Minnetrista to Flush Hydrants
The Minnetrista Public Works Department will be conducting seasonal hydrant flushing operations beginning Monday, May 4, 2015. They plan to begin flushing in the north section of the city on Monday starting in the Game Farm Rd/Sunny Brook area; Morningview area; Painter's Creek area and the Maple Crest area. Flushing in this section is expected to take 1 - 2 days. Next, they will begin flushing operations in the central section of the city covering the South Saunders Lake area; the North Saunders Lake area; the Cardinal Cove area; the Pinnacle Way area etc. Flushing in this section is expected to take 1 day.
Finally, they will begin flushing operations in the south section of the city flushing hydrants Hwy 7 to Hunter's Crest; the Palmer Pointe/Yellowstone area; and Co Rd 44 going south covering Trillium/Lakeview/Stonebridge etc. Flushing in this section of the city is expected to take 1 - 2 days
The hydrant-flushing program is very important to the maintenance of the City’s domestic water distribution system. Each year, Public Works Department water technicians systematically open hydrants throughout the City to allow water to flow at a high velocity through the distribution mainlines. This operation serves the following purposes:
Enhances water quality by removing sediments from inside the mainline and flushing them out through the hydrant.
Identifies malfunctions of the hydrant and related valves.
Helps determine weaknesses in the water distribution system.
Identifies inadequate water volumes and pressures in mainlines.
Helps determine fire flows at the hydrant.
Residents may encounter the following conditions during hydrant flushing operations:
A temporary drop in the water pressure to your home or business.
Rusty, brown, or cloudy water. (Discolored water is not harmful. These conditions will subside in a few hours after the flushing is completed.)
Helpful Hints to Remember:
Before the flushing operation begins:
Fill a bottle or clean, plastic milk jug with fresh tap water and store it in the refrigerator to use for drinking and cooking.
Do NOT wash white or light-colored laundry during the flushing operations.
During the flushing operation:
Avoid using the dishwasher and washing machine.
Avoid using faucets (hot or cold) is possible. Wait until the operation is completed.
After the flushing operation is completed:
Open the cold water faucets and let the water flow until it is clear. Turn off the faucets.
Open the hot water faucets and let the water flow until it is clear. Turn off the faucets.
When both hot and cold water are clear, the water is ready for use as normal.
Check the faucet screens for trapped particles.
Wash a load or two of dark-colored clothes first.
