Public Notice – Hydrant Flushing 9/11 – 9/18

The City of Mosier Water Operators will be flushing fire hydrants throughout the city on or near the following dates: 09/11/2021-09/18/2021.

Fire hydrants are flushed in order to:

• Clean out deposits, sediments and rust from our distribution pipelines

• Help minimize water quality problems

• Test fire protection water pressures

• Exercise hydrant valves

• Identify hydrants needing repair or replacement.

Motorists and pedestrians are asked to avoid driving or walking through the water coming directly from a hydrant while it is being flushed. If it is not possible to avoid the area, please proceed with caution.

Occasionally main flushing causes water flowing from a tap to be discolored from stirred up sediment or milky white caused by tiny air bubbles. Although discolored water won’t make you sick, you might want to flush the pipe by running the water for several minutes before drinking or washing.

If the water does not clear, please contact the City of Mosier:

Water Operator at: 541-645-5407  City Manager: 541-490-9758 City Recorder: 541-490-7411
