Hydrant Flushing

Evansville Water & Light will be conducting it’s Spring water main flushing operations starting approximately May 27th and will end no later than June 26th. Earlier we had posted an ad in the paper stating that we would be starting earlier and we apologize for any confusion this may have led to.  The reason for the delay is we are starting a new method of flushing the water mains called directional flushing. This new method requires more staffing and planning so we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding while we work through this.


Directional flushing compartmentalizes the City’s water system and allows us to better flush each individual sections which will greatly reduce the amounts of settled iron and manganese present in the pipes. These minerals are naturally occurring in the aquifer that we draw from and pose no health risk. Overtime these minerals can settle and oxidizes at the bottom of the water mains. When the water is stirred up from abnormally high flow it can cause a brownish colored water. The reason we are using this method is to mitigate these occurrences of discolored water in the system and hopefully remove the deposits better than what we achieved through previous methods. Water quality is of the utmost importance to the City. We take great pride in the work we do to provide our utility users with clean and safe water.
