City Gets Fire Hydrant Flushing

The city has been granted another 30 day extension on state required water line flushing so more water can be saved.
The city has been granted another 30 day extension on state required water line flushing so more water can be saved.

Texas law requires the city to flush dead end water mains once a month to help with water quality.

But, Operations Manger, Daniel Nix applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for a waiver that would allow the practice to be halted during the water shortage.

In October, they sent in the data on the water quality and paper work to get that waiver.

Since then,  they have not had to flush the mains..  and the TCEQ has granted them another 30- day extension while they're still deciding if the city can be granted a waiver that will last through the entire drought.
