    City-Wide Flushing of Water Distribution System

    June 1 through July 11, 2020
    The Public Works Department will be starting the systematic flushing of the water distribution system in the City of Aztec on June 1, 2020. Increased water usage throughout the system is stirring up sediment in the pipes resulting in brown water at several locations throughout the city. The flushing will begin in the center of town and will move outward toward the edges. It typically takes 4 to 6 weeks to flush the entire system. Flushing is performed by opening the fire hydrants throughout the system. Each hydrant will be opened fully for at least 15 minutes and until any sediment clears. Water will be running down the streets during the flushing. Please note that the flushing program is designed to stir up the sediment to have it flow out the hydrant. This causes the sediment to move and after the flushing, the sediment can be present in the water for a couple of days. Running water in your house until the water clears up, should remove the last of the sediment. Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this flushing program. Please contact the Public Works Department at 334-7660 if you have questions or require assistance during this process.
