Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant Flushing to begin April 17

The Wayzata Utility Department will be flushing water mains and fire hydrants throughout the City from Sunday evening, April 17th through Thursday evening, April 28th, weather permitting. The Utility Department will complete all flushing in the evening and night hours starting at 10:00 PM and stopping the following morning at 6:00 AM. Water system flushing is done at night to minimize the inconvenience of discolored water issues that this process may cause for residents and businesses during the day.  In addition, lower traffic volumes at night provide a safer environment for both the traveling public and for City staff working in the roadway. The purpose of flushing the water system is to remove any particulate matter that may have built up in the water system over the year, and also to ensure that all fire hydrants connected to the water system are operating properly for use by the Fire Department.  Because the flushing process may temporarily cause your water to become discolored, residents are advised to be observant while washing clothes until after the flushing has been completed. If discolored water is present, run the cold water faucets only until the water runs clear. The list and map of areas shown below is a general guideline as to where we will be flushing each evening. For more information, contact the Wayzata Public Works Department at 952-404-5363.
