Water Main Flushing

Project Description:

The Norfolk Water Division began their annual water main flushing program on Sunday, April 28th. Flushing will be done during the evening and overnight hours beginning at 8:30 p.m. and concluding at 6:30 a.m. the following day. Flushing will begin Sunday evening and conclude Thursday morning. No flushing will be performed on Thursday, Friday or Saturday evenings. It is estimated that the flushing program will be completed by May 23rd. The Norfolk Water Division is asking that the public refrain from parking near fire hydrants in the affected areas.

The purpose of the flushing program is to remove the buildup of iron and manganese deposits that have collected in the water mains. The water is bacteria free; however, it is not recommended to consume the water if it is extremely discolored. Customers living in the area affected by the flushing program are encouraged not to perform any laundry tasks at this time. The isolation of ice machines is recommended to prevent any iron and manganese deposits from plugging the ice machines.

Project Status:

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during the 2019 annual flushing program. The flushing was successful and the water mains cleaned up very well.

Due to ditch work in the area near 400 South Victory Road, the Water Division was unable to flush the hydrants near the Meadow Ridge and Sunrise/Walters Additions. These areas will be flushed in the future during the day shift after the ditch project has been completed.
