Hydrant Flushing

The Borough will be conducting its semi-annual fire hydrant flushing beginning Sunday, October 8 at 7:00 PM.

The flushing serves two functions- it maintains the high quality in the distribution and it also tests the fire hydrants to make sure they are functioning properly.

Flushing will begin Sunday, October 8 at 7:00 PM. Hydrants will be flushed between 7 PM and 5 AM to keep disruptions to the water system and traffic concerns to a minimum. The flushing should be completed by Saturday, October 14.

During this time, residents may experience a slight discoloration of their tap water. That should go away if they let the water run for 5 to 10 minutes. If the problems continues, you may contact Dave Runkle at 717-240-6991 or Corey Flythe at 717-240-6980 during regular business hours.
