Hydrant flushing is happening now!
The semi-annual hydrant flushing began the week of April 25 and will continue until May 6, 2022. This is a requirement that the town must follow – but for good reason; it keeps the water system from having sediment buildup and makes sure that all hydrants are functioning properly in the case of an emergency.
Please remember to run your cold water until clear if your water is discolored… that will prevent sediment from being introduced into your hot water heater!
We recommend scheduling use of clothes washers after the hydrant flushing in your neighborhood and after your water has cleared.
Shout out to Dan Stall and the rest of the Bennington Water Department team for getting this important work done!
