Fire hydrants to be flushed in some areas

April 05, 1996

The city of Westminster's Department of Public Works, Utility Maintenance Department, will flush fire hydrants from 8 p.m. to midnight Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Affected areas will be the West Main Street area, including Pennsylvania Avenue, Ward, Hersh, Monroe streets, Kemper and Milton Avenue avenues, Carroll and John streets, and the Westminster and Carroll Plaza shopping centers.

Also, Union Street, Sullivan Avenue, Autumn Ridge Court and School House Avenue areas will be flushed.

The flushing will cause some water discoloration and residents are advised not to do laundry the day afterward.

Residents should open all faucets the next morning and run them until water is clear. They are advised to draw water before the hydrant flushing for the following morning.

Even though water may be discolored, it is still fully treated and potable.
