Why does the City flush hydrants?
The City of Storm Lake like many other communities in Iowa and around the country have an annual flushing program to test and ensure adequate pressure at fire hydrants around town. Additionally, the flushing program allows the City to move water through the city’s water mains at a rapid rate helping to maintain water quality.
