Annual hydrant flushing starts May 13

The Frankfort Plant Board will begin its annual hydrant flushing on Monday, May 13, 2019. Flushing is necessary to maintain the integrity and quality of the distribution system and to ensure hydrants are functioning properly. This will also allow FPB to obtain fire-fighting flow information, which is shared with the city and county fire departments.

We ask that motorists please use caution in flushing areas due to possible water in the roadway. Some discoloration may occur in your tap water. This is normal. If discoloration persists after running your faucet for a short time, please call 352-4372. We anticipate flushing throughout the county to be complete in 2 to 3 months.
