Hydraulic Flushing

Hydraulic Flushing (also known as Watermain Flushing) is the process used to clean watermains. Water system valves are turned off to isolate a section of the watermain and water is then flushed through in one direction at a high speed to produce a scouring action that removes built-up sediment in the water main. The City cleans watermains to improve water quality by removing sediment.
