Hydrant Flushing Schedule

We conduct flushing hydrants and end of line blowoffs during the months of April through November and will start in the Penn Hills, Churchill, Wilkins Township and Swissvale areas.

This is semi annual maintenance work to clear the main lines of sediment and to determine that hydrants are working properly.

The flushing will take place, weekdays between the hours of 4:00PM and 8:00AM and will occur around the clock on weekends and holidays.

You may experience a loss of water, low pressure or may see some discoloration in your water. This is only a temporary condition and normal service will be restored promptly. We are sorry for any inconvenience and we thank you for your patience.

As a matter of law, fire hydrants are to be used only as a protection for the public good.  This is codified under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act, as well as the Homeland Security Act.

Your cooperation in the proper use and maintenance of public fire hydrants will be necessary to keep your community’s safety a priority while keeping our costs reasonable.  If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Authority’s office.
