Hydrant Flushing Starts May 6 in Beacon - Here's The Schedule of That Brown Water

With the start of spring comes… hydrant flushing. This is an annual practice by the City of Beacon for helping the water run optimally. Flushing usually stirs up iron and mineral deposits in the city’s waterworks, which can turn the water brown for a brief period. Wait to wash laundry until the water runs clear. It’s a good time to not run any laundry, as stains can happen. Perhaps fold the laundry instead?

If you have any questions, call the city’s Water Department at (845) 831-3136.
