[ARCHIVED] Water System Burn Out & Fire Hydrant Flushing
The City of Lake Jackson plans to do a system burn out using free chlorine starting on November 6th through November 20, 2017. Lake Jackson and BWA (who help supply us with water) schedule this at the same time for maximum effectiveness. This flushing is beneficial to overall water quality, and is scheduled maintenance for the system.
The Utilities Department will begin our city-wide fire hydrant flushing on November 10th. We execute this flushing at the same time as an important water treatment process. This flushing is beneficial to overall water quality to help reduce scaling in the pipes and determine if there are any hydrants that have become a safety issue. The flushing schedule is:
November 10th and 11th 10:00pm- 4:00am:
Woodland Park 1, Woodland Park 2, South Park Way/Brazos Oaks, Azalea Area, Flag Ridge Estates, Jackson Plantation, Plantation Village, Abner Jackson Area, Downtown, Balsam Area and Camelia Area.
November 17th and 18th 10:00pm-4:00am:
Magnolia Park/Forest Bend, Sleepy Hollow & Oyster Bend, Pecan Grove, Timber Creek 1, Timber Creek 2, Northwood/Deerwood/Linden Lane Area, Plantation Oak, Shy Wood, Pecan Lake Estates and Oak Forest.
As a result of the flushing procedure, residents may experience temporary discoloration of their water. This discoloration consists of harmless silt and precipitates and does not affect the safety of the water. If you have any questions please call (979)415-2434.
