Solon Fire-Rescue will be conducting it’s annual flushing of fire hydrants during the month of September. Firefighters will flow water from each hydrant to remove debris and check the proper operation to ensure they are ready for emergencies. Hydrants that are found to not be in working order are tagged and submitted for repair.
As a result of the line flushing process, residents in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of their water. This discoloration consists primarily of harmless silt and air and does not affect the safety of the water. If you experience discoloration in your water after crews have been flushing in your neighborhood, clear the pipes in your home by running all water faucets for a few minutes.
A list showing which streets will be flushed on each date is posted on the fire department page of the City of Solon Website. Check here often for updates!
