According to an update from the City of Milton, beginning the week of October 3, Milton Water utility will flush all fire hydrants in the city to make sure they are in good working order and to help flush sediment out of the distribution system.
If you notice flushing in your area, you may see discoloration in your faucet water. Let it run for a few minutes, preferably from your outside hose connection, and it will clear up. The water is safe to drink. You may not want to do laundry on the day hydrants are flushed in your area. If you have any questions, call the City of Milton Water Department at 608-868-6905.
