Orange City will be flushing fire hydrants between Jan. 27 and March 1, which may cause discoloration in residents’ water, or low water pressure.
The flushing will be done at night to minimize inconvenience.
City officials said if discoloration occurs, water customers should run the water for five minutes, or until the discoloration clears.
Flushing the hydrants is part of an ongoing maintenance program. Flushing clears the waterlines and gives utility workers insight into the mechanical condition of the fire hydrants.
