[ARCHIVED] City of Xenia to conduct hydrant flushing October 7 - 11

October Hydrant Flushing

Maintenance crews for the City of Xenia will be conducting hydrant flushing the week of October 7, 2019, in order to clean water mains. 

Hydrants are flushed twice a year and is one of the measures taken to ensure citizen safety during fire emergencies.

While crews work to flush hydrants across the city, the water is safe to drink, however residents may notice discolored water, low water pressure and hydrants flowing for a long period of time. Residents should check their water before doing laundry or drawing water. Water discoloration can occur in other areas of the city while crews are flushing hydrants in another area. 

The City recommends that residents who have water softeners not cycle the unit at night unless the water has been checked. The softener can also be bypassed if water is discolored for any length of time.

Flushing will be done the week of October 7 during the hours of 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. The tentative schedule is:

  • Monday:

Northwest of W. Church St., North of W. Market St. and Dayton Ave. and West of N. Detroit St. (Beverly Hills, Fairmoor Heights, Timber Ridge, North Galloway Areas and Laynewood north of Dayton Ave.)

  • Tuesday:
