City of Valley to conduct semi-annual hydrant flushing

Residents may experience decreased water pressure or discolored water during this time

VALLEY, NE.—March 26, 2024—PeopleService will be conducting semi-annual hydrant flushing beginning April 1, 2024 and continuing for approximately two weeks.

Hydrants are flushed twice a year to remove the iron and manganese sediment build up in the bottom of the water mains and to ensure proper functioning of hydrants in the event of a fire. The buildup of sediment is caused by iron and manganese in our soil that was deposited into the water mains and service lines before the water was treated in the City of Valley.

During this time, residents may experience unfavorable occurrences with your water supply. Such issues may be a reduction in water pressure and a discoloration of your water. If possible, it is recommended you refrain from using water when you notice hydrants being flushed in your immediate area to reduce the chance of loose sediment entering your service line. If water must be used while flushing is occurring in your immediate area and the water is discolored, residents should run their faucets for approximate 15 minutes to flush their service lines of sediment.

If the discoloration persists more than 15 minutes, you may contact the utility clerk or report the issue through the online citizen concern form located on our website or app:
