Fire Hydrant Flushing in Coralville

The City of Coralville Water Department will begin to flush fire hydrants in Coralville starting in mid-March, weather permitting, through late April.  The Water Department will flush fire hydrants north of Interstate 80 in the spring of 2017. Hydrants south of Interstate 80 will be flushed in the fall of 2017.

Crews will begin flushing hydrants in the northeast part of Coralville the week of March 13 as weather conditions permit.

As a result of hydrant flushing, residents in the vicinity may notice water running down the street, or a temporary discoloration of their water which does not affect the water safety. In the event of discolored water, run cold water from a faucet until the water clears.

Hydrant flushing is an annual water system maintenance practice that moves water through the pipelines fast enough to remove sediment, and allows the City to service fire hydrants and check water pressure. For more information, please contact the Coralville Water Department at 319.248.1770 or the Utility Billing Department at 319.248.1715.
