The City of Cuyahoga Falls has announced that hydrant flushing will begin on June 8 during daytime hours, Monday through Friday, from 3 to 11 p.m. The work is scheduled to be completed by late-August.

Hydrant flushing serves an important dual purpose of removing sediment and iron deposits from the mains. It also provides a check of the working conditions of hydrants to ensure the best fire protection for our community.

Signs will alert residents and drivers to when hydrant flushing is occurring. Water may appear discolored after flushing. Residents should allow the cold water to run until it clears.
