County's flushing of hydrants begins

April 20, 2003

Harford County's biannual flushing of its 4,200 fire hydrants, postponed last year because of the drought, is under way and will end June 7.

There will be a temporary discoloration of the water, changes in water pressure or temporary interruption of water service during this time. Customers can expect the flushing to occur between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, although the county may continue the work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends.

County officials delayed the action last year for water conservation, according to Robert Cooper, deputy public works director for the water and sewer division.
