Burnsville Hydrant Flushing Begins April 2 | News
The City of Burnsville will begin flushing all city-owned fire hydrants on April 2. The process is expected to take a little over a month.
Crews will be flushing the hydrants from 4 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. They say it is necessary to make sure they are working properly in case of a fire and to remove mineral deposits and buildup.
You may notice a change in the color, smell and pressure of your tap water during the process. City officials say don't be surprised if you smell a chlorine odor or notice a rust color to your water. They say it is not a health issue and your water is still safe.
To avoid staining your laundry officials say to run your water until it runs clear. If you do run into problems, rust remover is available from the Burnsville Maintenance Facility.
For more information and general hydrant flushing questions contact the Burnsville Maintenance Facility at 952-895-4550 or visit www.burnsville.org/hydrants.
