Routinely flushing water mains through hydrants is a necessary and important part of maintaining Durham's water distribution system. Hydrant flushing removes sediments that build up in the mains, keeps water flowing and prevents stagnation, and ensures proper chlorine levels and high water quality throughout the system. Flushing also helps us ensure the City's fire hydrants are working properly.
