Hydrant Flushing

The Wayzata Utility Department will be flushing water mains and fire hydrants in the spring, weather permitting. The Utility Department will complete most flushing in the daytime hours, and some locations during night hours, starting at 10:00 PM and stopping the following morning at 6:00 AM. 

The purpose of flushing the water system is to remove any particulate matter that may have built up in the water system over time, 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 flushing has been completed. If discolored water is present, run the cold water faucets only until the water runs clear. The list of areas shown is a general guideline as to where we will be flushing each evening.
