Middletown begins hydrant flushes
Middletown’s Public Works Department announced that hydrant flushes will occur over the next two weeks.
During flushes, residents may notice reduced water pressure and flow or a discoloration of water.
This will clear up after running the water for a little while.
Hydrant flushing is necessary to ensure water quality and avoid rusty water in situations where there is a high demand for water due to a firefighting effort or water main break.
