Water/Sewer Division

2020 Water Main Flushing Schedule

The Norfolk Water Division will begin their annual water main flushing program on April 26th, 2020. Flushing will be done during the evening and overnight hours beginning at 8:30 PM and concluding at 6:30 AM the following day. Flushing will begin Sunday evening and conclude Thursday morning. No flushing will be
performed on Thursday, Friday or Saturday evenings. It is estimated that the flushing program will be completed by May 21st, 2020. The Norfolk Water Division is asking that the public refrain from parking near fire hydrants in the affected areas.

The purpose of the flushing program is to remove the buildup of Iron and Manganese deposits that have collected in the water mains. The water is bacteria free however it is not recommended to consume the water if it is extremely discolored. Customers living in the area affected by the flushing program are encouraged not to perform any laundry tasks at this time. The isolation of ice machines is recommended to prevent any iron and manganese deposits from plugging the ice machines.
The City of Norfolk would like to thank you for your patience during this program.

For those requiring additional information please call the Water Division at 844-2210.
