Cedar Falls Fire Department to flush hydrants

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Fire crews in Cedar Falls will be flushing fire hydrants the next few days.

Monday through Thursday, the hydrants will be flushed to remove built-up sediment in the water mains and improve water quality.

That takes about 20 minutes per hydrant.

You should try to avoid water use when crews are flushing hydrants in your neighborhood.

If you notice discolored water, stop running it for about 30 minutes to allow workers time to complete the flushing.

You can contact Cedar Falls Utilities with any questions.
