  • Bennington’s Hydrant Flushing is a STATE Mandated Program that occurs every April and October.
  • It ensures a higher Water Quality and allows for proper Hydrant Maintenance for Fire Protection.
  • You may experience low water pressure.
  • You may also experience discolored water.
  • These are normal and unavoidable side effects of the program.
  • We recommend you schedule clothes washing and other cleaning projects after daily flushing hours and once your water has run clear.
  • If you experience discolored water Run Your Cold Water Until It Is Clear.
