While the hydrant flushing may cause some temporary water discoloration, the water is safe to use and will clear shortly after areas are flushed. Please check your water for clarity prior to doing any laundry. Should your laundry become discolored, do not dry clothes until you have had an opportunity to re-wash them in an iron removing detergent.
If you have any questions, please contact Chris Harold at the Oakwood Public Works Department at (937) 298-0777 x5364. Additional details are also available by accessing the 2021 Fire Hydrant Flushing Press Release.
