Spring Flushing

Spring Flushing

ACWWA will again be flushing all the water mains throughout the service area this spring.

Water main flushing is the process of cleaning or “scouring” the interior of water distribution main pipes by sending a rapid flow of water through the main pipes. Flushing provides many benefits including the reduction of bacterial growth in the pipes; helps to identify missing or broken valves; ensures that fire hydrants are operational; dislodges and removes sediments and deposit build-up in the pipes; and helps to reduce taste and odor problems.


ACWWA flushes the water mains approximately once per year, in the spring. The flushing process generally takes 1 - 2 days per neighborhood to complete.  Look for signs that flushing will occur at the entrances to your neighborhood.  Occasionally, weather may delay/hinder the flushing process and emergencies may arise where ACWWA’s staff is called away from flushing for a day or two. Please call the office at 303-790-4830 or check ACWWA’s web page for any updates and more information.
