Hydrants getting flushed in Basalt

Commuters and pedestrians who encounter water flowing out of hydrants and valves in Basalt streets this week are being urged not to freak out. It’s part of the autumn maintenance program.

The public works department started flushing the systems starting Tuesday and will continue into the week. Water will be flowing into the streets. Motorists are urged to drive carefully.
