2019 Water Hydrant Flushing Schedule


Area to be flushed













Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on October 15, and continuing through October 31, the Kent County Division of Water & Wastewater will flush the water systems listed in the above table.  Normal service should be restored by 3:00 p.m. each day.   The flushing reduces the trace amounts of material commonly found in any water system. 


While flushing is in progress, you will may notice drops in water pressure and a rusty appearance to the water.  If your water does appear rusty, flush it until it becomes clear.  Also, avoid doing laundry and minimize the use of hot water.  While this program may cause some inconvenience, it will help to maintain the high quality of your service. 


In advance, the Kent County Division of Water and Wastewater appreciates your cooperation and patience.  If you should have any questions regarding this procedure, please contact the Division of Water and Wastewater at (410) 778-3287 during the normal business hours of 8:30 am – 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
