The City of Newburgh Water Department will begin flushing fire hydrants throughout the City beginning on Monday, September 18, 2023. This process will take three to four weeks to finish. Hydrant flushing is done on a regular maintenance cycle to ensure hydrants are in working order for fire protection.
City residents are requested to:
- Use caution when approaching flushing operations.
- Refrain from doing laundry when Water Department operators are in the area.
- Limit household water use, as well as outside watering and irrigation when Water Department operators are in the area.
Customers may notice a water discoloration or a change in water pressure for a short period of time. Please check your water before use. We appreciate residents’ cooperation and patience during this procedure.
