Fire Hydrant Flushing Update

May 24, 2023 – Firefighters from the Mifflin Township Fire Department are now in the process of flushing fire hydrants in the area shaded in red on the map below. As a reminder, this work 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 Department of Public Service at (614) 342-4005.

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