FIRE HYDRANT FLUSHING

The Shippensburg Borough Authority will be flushing fire hydrants starting October 13, 2017, during daylight hours, and will continue at various locations until November 3, 2017.  This is an essential part of our system maintenance program, because it helps us to continue to provide you with high-quality water service.

During the process, we systematically open our fire hydrants to “flush” any minerals and deposits from the pipes. While flushing the system won’t interrupt your water service, when we are working in your area, you may notice a temporary drop in water pressure or discolored water. This is normal; the discoloration is not harmful. If this happens, simply let your water run until it is clear.  Water pressure will resume to normal pressure once flushing is complete in the area.

The Shippensburg Borough Authority appreciates your patience and apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
