Will take place overnight from June 5 to 10

The Cold Spring Water Department plans to flush hydrants in its entire distribution system beginning Sunday, June 5. The flush will take place from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. through Friday, June 10. Residents may notice periods of little or no water pressure during the hours of the flush and discoloration each morning thereafter. They are advised to run their cold water taps until clear.

The department also will be performing fire-flow testing in many areas of the village from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., from Tuesday, June 7, to Thursday, June 9. This flow data will be used by the Insurance Services Office to calculate Fire Protection ratings in the district. This may also cause periods of low pressure and discoloration, but it is being planned to coincide with the flush in order to minimize its effects.
