When does flushing normally occur?

The Livingston Water Department flushes hydrants on a rolling basis year round from late March to early November. Water Division employees will perform the hydrant flushing between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., and in some cases between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

Residents are reminded to refrain from doing laundry and using hot water during the hydrant flushing hours.
