ECCV conducts a system-wide flush of its water lines each spring. This process usually takes a little more than a month and involves opening hydrants throughout the District. This effort helps remove naturally occurring sediment from water lines to prepare for summer, when demand increases. This process also ensures hydrants throughout the District are in good working order which is important for public safety.
The schedule below indicates when ECCV crews plan to conduct flushing operations in each neighborhood, weather permitting. Please be cautious of doing laundry during flushing. Please be aware that the flush can create temporary water discoloration. If this happens, run a faucet on cold until the water clears.
