Overview

DC Water has installed about a dozen automated flushing devices (autoflushers) on hydrants throughout the District.

When water sits in aging pipes, natural corrosion can cause discoloration. We see this most often in neighborhoods with older water mains and low water use. DC Water crews routinely flush hydrants in these neighborhoods to improve water quality. Hydrant flushing replaces stationary water with fresh water from the distribution system.
