Hydrant flushing happening this week in Hornell

  • Staff Report 

The City of Hornell has announced it will commence its routine hydrant flushing across the area starting this weekend, from Saturday, April 20, through Friday, April 26. The overnight flushing process, scheduled from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., will take place in the Town of Hornellsville, the Village of North Hornell, and the City of Hornell to ensure the maintenance and efficiency of the water distribution system.


Residents are advised to avoid doing laundry during flushing hours to prevent any potential water discoloration issues. The city recommends checking water clarity by running the cold tap first; if discoloration occurs, residents should continue to let the water run until it clears.

The city extends its gratitude to residents for their cooperation during this essential maintenance period, which helps in preserving the integrity and functionality of the water system.
