Fire Hydrant Maintenance

The City of Sanford will be conducting a Hydrant Maintenance Program. This program will affect only those subdivisions and areas that are on the City’s water system. Private systems and those complexes on master-meters will not be a part of this program. The City of Sanford water distribution system is a complex network, where sediment or deposits may naturally accumulate in the pipes over time. Flushing the hydrants removes sediment and ensures that the distribution system is operating at its best. Flushing is done Monday through Friday between 7:00am and 5:00pm.

Flushing and testing of hydrants is expected to begin on June 17, 2024.

What should I expect while the City’s Contractor (Hydromax) is flushing in my area?

During the flushing periods customers will continue to have water service, but flushing operations may activate low-pressure alarms on automatic fire sprinkler systems and may cause minor water discoloration. While the water is still safe to drink, we recommend that customers run their faucets for five to ten minutes or until water runs clear. Customers should also monitor their water quality prior to doing their laundry. If the discolored water doesn’t clear up after running your faucets as instructed above, please contact Utility Customer Service at 407.688.5100.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding as we continue to improve the City’s drinking water system.
