Fire Hydrant Flushing to Occur in May

Throughout May, the Mifflin Township Fire Department will be flushing fire hydrants in the red region shown on the map below. This is for preventative maintenance and to ensure the hydrants are working properly.

During this process, firefighters will open hydrants and temporarily let water flow from them. While this occurs, you may notice low water pressure and a brief discoloration of the water in your home. If discoloration occurs, run your water for about one minute, after which time the discoloration should disappear.  You should refrain from drinking discolored water or doing laundry with it. We recommend briefly running your laundry machine before putting clothes in it to ensure the water is running as normal. If your water does not return to normal, please call the City’s Utility Supervisor, Jordan Doll, at (614) 342-4426.

Updates on where flushing will occur will be posted to and on the City’s Facebook page, as they become available.
