The City of South Bend will begin flushing fire hydrants this week.

Hydrant flushing is an annual part of routine water distribution maintenance, and will be conducted through October.

During flushing, residents should keep in mind:

– Tap water may temporarily appear red, brown or blackish in color. If this happens, run three cold-water faucets at full stream until the water runs clear again.

– Check clothes washers and icemakers before using for any sediment.

– If faucets seem clogged or running slowly, remove screens and rinse out.

– Water pressure may fluctuate. If it does, this is only temporary and regular water pressure will resume once the flushing period is complete.
