The Town of Davie Utilities Department will begin the annual fire hydrant flushing maintenance program on January 15, 2013. The Town of Davie’s flushing program involves systematically opening the fire hydrants within the system served by Town of Davie Utilities to remove sediments or other constituents that may accumulate in pipes over time that could lead to taste and odor problems. Flushing in dead-end lines will also improve disinfectant residual levels in those areas. This is an essential part of our system maintenance program. While flushing the system will not interrupt your water service, you may notice a temporary drop in water pressure or discolored water when crews are working in your area. This is normal. If this occurs, simply let your water run until it is clear. This flushing process is expected to continue through February 15, 2013.

Only residents that receive water and sewer bills from the Town of Davie will be affected. See map. Other Town residents that receive water and sewer bills from other utilities (i.e., City of Sunrise, City of Fort Lauderdale, City of Hollywood and Ferncrest Utilities) will not be affected at this time. These utilities companies schedule their own flushing programs.
