-A A +A

Harriman Fire Department, in partnership with Harriman Utility Board, will begin flushing fire hydrants throughout the city starting today, Aug. 15.

The flushing will continue until the process is complete.

A release from Harriman Fire Department said this process is vital for making sure that the hydrants operate properly during an emergency incident and plays an important part on the city's insurance rating.

Water customers who notice their water being cloudy or slightly muddy looking are advised to stop using it for a few minutes to allow the system to settle down.

Every effort will be made to make the process as quick as possible and work with timing in downtimes of water use.
