Can I use water during hydrant flushing?

It is generally recommended to avoid using water, such as doing laundry or running appliances, while hydrants are being flushed in your area. The flushing process may temporarily disrupt water flow and cause sediment or discolored water to enter the pipes. Once the flushing is complete, it is advisable to run your taps for a few minutes to clear any residual discolored water before using it for consumption or sensitive tasks.
