Fire hydrant flushing underway

Residents may notice discoloration during the process

The Village of Bluffton will begin its the bi-annual flushing of the fire hydrants this week, according to Bryan Lloyd, assistant village administrator.

"The process should take approximately two weeks to complete," he said, adding,  "In the past, some residents have reported discoloration of the water during this process."

The discoloration usually subsides within a few hours of the flushing being completed in the area. Running a spigot for a few minutes can also help.
