Westerville is getting serious about its hydrants.

The City’s Hydrant Flushing Program will run around the clock in order to flush the more than 2,471 hydrants in the City’s system. All hydrants are flushed once a year to help clear the water lines of particulates that may build up over time. Crews also check the hydrants and valves for any operational issues which need to be addressed in order to keep the hydrants in good working order.

Residents may notice a brownish tint to their water after the hydrants in their neighborhood have been flushed. If so, run the water through a tap for a few minutes and it should clear up. Residents may also want to run their washer through a rinse cycle once before doing laundry.

Please contact the Westerville Department of Public Service at (614) 901-6740 with any questions, concerns, or help in determining when hydrants will be flushed. The Department is open Monday through Friday, 7 AM to 4 PM.
