Hydrant Flushing in the City of Katy
 
Forum Image
 
The City of Katy Water Department will be flushing hydrants beginning Monday, June 7th thru June 9th. The hydrant flushing will take place between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
 
The flushing may cause low water pressure as well as some discoloration of water, but this does not represent a health hazard. If you experience discolored water, run the cold water in all your faucets for approximately 5-10 minutes or open the outside faucet closest to your water meter for several minutes before using the water. However, customers are cautioned to determine if the water is clear before washing clothes (or any other processing) as staining may occur.
 
Note: If laundry becomes stained, do not put laundry in the dryer. Rewash clothes immediately using detergent and add a rust remover. Most rust removers can also be used on stained fixtures. If water pressure or water volume seems to be low after hydrant flushing has been completed, check faucet screens (aerator) for trapped particles/sediment.
 
The City of Katy cannot be responsible for any damages incurred as a result of this activity. The flushing program is necessary to maintain a good water supply for both firefighting and domestic consumption which is a necessary and normal maintenance function of their water supply as required by the Department of Environmental Protection.

Thank you City of Katy for always making sure these hydrants are in working order. Never want to have an emergency and find that there is a problem.
You are amazing!!!

I've gotten that rust remover from WalMart in the past. I found it in the hardware section instead of with the detergents. Maybe since the city is flushing they will make a special place where it can be easily found.
