Bi-Annual Hydrant Flushing to begin on Sunday, April 24

The Town of Ocean City’s Public Works Department will begin conducting the spring hydrant flushing of the water system beginning Sunday, April 24.  The hydrant flushing, which is done bi-annually, will progress from south to north, beginning on South 1st Street and covering several blocks per day.
Currently, public works personnel are scheduled to perform the hydrant flushing throughout the late evening hours and into the early morning hours; however, circumstances may require those times to change.   Residents and businesses are reminded that after flushing there may be a slight discoloration of the water.  This is not harmful and will dissipate after a short time.  If you wish to clear your pipes, run cold water for several minutes until the water runs clear.
The completion of this project is expected to be done by the afternoon on Friday, April 29.  For questions or concerns about the hydrant flushing in your area, please contact the Public Works Water Department at410.524.8388.
