Hydrant flushing is necessary to remove any naturally settled sediment from the pipes to ensure water quality. This also is a good time to test for adequate flow and pressure for each area. Fire hydrants are flushed twice each year. This usually is done in spring and fall. Dates will be posted here and in the Dodge County Pioneer when they are scheduled.
