Routine Hydrant Flushing

The City of Garland Water Department conducts routine hydrant flushing to maintain the integrity of the water distribution system. Garland has more than 8,000 hydrants that need to be maintained.

Hydrant flushing ensures high water quality by:

  • removing any sediments from inside the lines;
  • identifying inadequate water volumes and pressures;
  • determining any malfunctions of the hydrant and valves;
  • ensuring chlorine residuals remain at constant optimal levels; and
  • establishing fire flows at the hydrant.

 For additional information about water quality, please call the Water Department at 972-205-3210.
