How often are hydrants flushed?
The Utility Services Department flushes the entire system for two weeks twice a year, generally beginning during the 1st week of May and November. Before flushing the fire hydrants, a public notice is published in the Boca Raton News and placed on the City's website as well as notification on Government Access Channel 20. Businesses and customers that may be adversely affected by the flushing, such as hospitals, doctor's offices, pet stores, and others are contacted directly by the Utility Services Department. Please call 561-338-7300 for more information.
