Flushing Hydrants & Summer Concerts

Greetings all,

Here are a couple of announcements helpful to us living in MHC.  The first is from MHA affecting water supply to a portion of our community, the second informs of upcoming free concerts open to the MHC residents. Please note.

Announcement #1: Flushing Hydrants
Dear Residents,
We wanted to let you know that on June 6 and June 7 we will be flushing hydrants located on upper Madrone, Azalea and Glen Alpine.
Water main flushing is the process of cleaning or “scouring” the inside of the water main by sending a high-velocity flow of water through the system. This is conducted by opening fire hydrants and releasing water at the speed of up to 5 feet per second to remove deposits built up inside the mains.

Flushing is a crucial preventative measure that helps to maintain the capacity of the pipe and to protect water quality by removing deposits from inside the mains.

If your water is discolored, flush from a cold water fixture as far away from your water meter as possible and let the water run until clear. This could take 10-15 minutes. We recommend you do not use a hot water tap to flush, as this draws sediment into your hot water heater. Also, please abstain from doing laundry on the day of flushing and make sure your water is clear before running your washing machine.
