City to begin fire hydrant flushing on Monday

(Gillette, Wyo.) The City of Gillette has announced that the Water Division will begin flushing out fire hydrants around the city on Monday, April 25th. This is routine maintenance on the water system, and improves the water quality and flow rates. Releasing high-pressure water from the hydrants also scours and scrubs the water mains, removing sediments and deposits. While flushing the hydrants, crews will also test flow rate and valves to make sure they are ready, if needed, to protect our community from fire. If you have questions, contact the City Water Division at 686-5276. #county17 #news
