Fire Hydrant flushing this week in Newnan
From Special Reports
Newnan Utilities will be performing its annual flushing of fire hydrants on Wednesday evening, August 3.
The time of the hydrant flushing will be approximately 9:30 p.m. to midnight.
Fire hydrant flushing is when Newnan Utilities crews allow water to run from the hydrants into the street. Even though it may appear this goes against water conservation philosophy, the process of periodically “flushing” fire hydrants is an important preventative maintenance activity to insure the integrity of the water system and deliver the highest quality water to Newnan Utilities customers.
