Hydrant Flushing Scheduled in Cuba Village

Monday, October 24, 2016  The Cuba Village Department of Public Works will be flushing fire hydrants within the village beginning Monday, October 24 through approximately Wednesday, October 26, 2016.

How can I found out when hydrants will be flushed?

Hydrant flushing in the Village normally takes place the last consecutive Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday of April and October between the hours of 7:00 A.M. & 3:30 P.M. Further information regarding hydrant flushing can be obtained by calling 585-968-1560. Periodically, you will see Department of Public Works personnel releasing water from hydrants. Hydrant flushing is necessary to test the hydrants to make sure adequate flow and pressure is available and at the same time, provide valve stem lubrication. Flushing is also done to remove sediment from the valve seat area, and the pipes in order to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution pipes.

Is my water safe to drink after flushing?

Your water is safe to drink. Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears. If it doesn't clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. You may want to avoid washing clothes or running dishwashers until the water clears.
