DEPOE BAY RESIDENTS &
City will be
flushing the fire hydrants & water mains
starting May 6 at 10 PM
This maintenance exercise needs to be done once a year. You may experience brown water. This condition will disappear as we flush the lines. You should not do laundry if brown water is present; it may discolor the clothing. Open up your faucets to clear your water lines.
The crew will begin on the south side of town and move north.
We estimate it will take 3-4 nights to complete the flushing.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and will do everything possible to keep the disruption to a minimum. Thank you for your patience!

April 3, 2013 UPDATE
March 27, 2013
to Begin April 15 POSTPONED
Every year the City flushes hydrants to remove stale water from line-ends where manganese, iron, and soda ash can accumulate. When a flush is done, it all gets stirred up, and water lines throughout town can end up with brown water, which can be cleared by running a tap for 1-2 minutes. The flushing process is done between the hours of 11 PM and 6 AM, and takes about a week.
This year's flush will begin the night of Monday, April 15 and continue each night, through the morning of Friday, April 19. Residents and businesses are encouraged to run their water in the morning to clear any residue from the flushing.
