Fire Hydrant Flushing in March, April
Irving firefighters perform flushing to check for proper water flow and pressure, and to ensure that hydrants will work properly in case of emergency.
State and federal agencies require water utilities workers to flush fire hydrants to circulate water, and to remove rust and other debris from lines. This process helps ensure fresh, quality water arrives at each house and business.
While the city may be under Stage 1 water restrictions, residents need to be aware that the flushing of fire hydrants is necessary to guarantee public health and safety. For information, call (972) 721-2281.
