Clayton has over 830 fire hydrants that will be inspected and tested during this process. During hydrant flushing, the water in your home may have a rusty appearance. The discoloration doesn’t affect the safety of the water. If you notice discoloration, run cold water for several minutes to clear the lines. The water should run clear in a few minutes. Toilets should also be flushed once or twice. If pressure or volume seems low at faucet locations, check your faucet screens for trapped particles. If you see the Fire Department working on a hydrant, please drive carefully and provide the same courtesies you would any other road construction crew. If you have any questions or concerns about the fire hydrant flushing process, please call the Fire Department at 937-836-3500
