[ARCHIVED] ERMU Hydrant Flushing May 13-17

Hydrant FlushingSpring has sprung which means Elk River Municipal Utilities (ERMU) will be flushing all of the city’s 1,200 fire hydrants starting Monday, May 13 through Friday, May 17. Hydrant flushing serves as a preventative maintenance activity, ensuring all hydrants, valves, and water mains are in good working order when needed. The high pressure release of water from a hydrant also helps clear any sediment or debris that has accumulated in the pipes over time, which improves water quality and overall system reliability.
