Hydrant flushing starts next week in Binghamton

Posted: Updated:

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- The City of Binghamton is advising its residents that hydrant flushing starts soon.

April 24 through May 26, the Water Department will test and flush hydrants city wide.

It will take place Mondays through Fridays from 7:00 a.m to 11:00 p.m.

Residents may experience low water pressure or notice discolored water. The city says to check the cold water before using it, as it may need to run for a period of time to clear up.

Hydrant flushing is done twice a year to ensure the water lines are fully functional for private use and fire protection.
