On April 15 the Grandview Heights Fire Department started their annual fire hydrant flushing. Over the course of the next month, crews will work their way around Marble Cliff to flush each hydrant. Flushing the hydrants ensures that each one is properly functioning and also removes sediment and debris from the water lines. Sometimes hydrant flushing can make the water temporarily appear rust-colored because the iron and mineral deposits in the water get stirred up. We assure you this is safe and advise you to run your cold tap for 2-3 minutes until the water turns clear.
