Loudoun County, Va. (March 29, 2015) – It’s Springtime and that means Loudoun Water will conduct annual hydrant flushing to ensure high standards of water quality and proper operation of valves and hydrants.
The flushing cleans out sediment and other particles that accumulate naturally in water mains. This year, flushing will start the week of March 23rd and will continue for approximately 12 weeks.
There are over 9,300 hydrants that must be maintained in the Loudoun Water System. The flushing of hydrants around the service area will have no effect on water usage.
To see when Loudoun Water crews will be in your area, you can follow us on Twitter. We will be providing daily updates to the areas crews will be working in.
