The City of Rochester's Water Main Flushing program is conducted annually to remove sediment from water mains throughout the city. The work involves little or no interruption of service, although a slight discoloration of the water and drop in water pressure may occur in areas where flushing is underway.
The service is provided on a seasonal basis, between April and November. Crews performing water main flushing work from 10:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays during these months. Residents and businesses in affected areas are notified in advance of flushing activities. Daily water main work schedules may be viewed at Street Beat .
Individuals with concerns about the Water Main Flushing program may 311 (outside the city, call (585) 428-5990).
