Hydrant Flushing

Due to the recent weather, the Wayzata Utility Department will begin flushing water mains and fire hydrants from Sunday evening, April 22nd through Thursday, May 3rd, weather permitting. The utility department will complete all flushing in the evening and night hours starting at 10:00 pm and stop the following morning at 6:00 am to alleviate discolored water issues this process has caused residents and commercial businesses during the day. Traffic volumes and safety during the day have also become a concern which will be considerably less. The purpose of this process is to remove any particulate matter that may have built up in the water mains over the year and also to ensure that all fire hydrants on the water system are operating properly in the event of a fire. As this flushing process may 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 clears. The list and map of areas below is a general guideline as to where we will be flushing each evening. For additional information, contact Wayzata Public Works at 952-404-5363.
