Although tap water discoloration may persist for a few hours after a hydrant is flushed, it does not affect the taste or quality of the water, which is safe to drink. It may, however, cause discoloration of laundry.

The hydrants are flushed to enhance water quality by removing sediment from mainline pipes and ensure the proper operation of hydrants and valves.
