Upcoming Hydrant Flushing

The City will be performing routine hydrant flushing between June 13th to June 15th. Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens:

  • Run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears
  • If it doesn’t clear, wait a few minutes and run the water again
  • Avoid running hot water to keep sediment out of hot water heater
  • Avoid washing clothes until the water clears
  • Call the City at (503) 667-6211 to report discolored water that lasts longer than a day
