Tribal Water Department Schedules Fall Hydrant Flushing

Sep 24, 2014

The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Water Department will be performing fall hydrant flushing starting September 29 through October 23, 2014. The weekly schedule is as follows:

September 29-October 2: Waterplant Road to St. Regis Road, including all side roads, White Road and Christine Lane.

October 6-10: Frogtown to Rooseveltown and Raquette Point.

October 14-17: Akwesasne Mohawk Casino, East 37 and Tarbell Road.

October 20-23: Cook Road and Drum Street.

Please be advised that during hydrant flushing, residents may experience water pressures that are lower than normal while the work is being performed in your area. Hydrant flushing may also temporarily discolor the water and may cause staining of some clothing if you are doing laundry at this time. Please plan accordingly. Also, please use caution when hydrant flushing is occurring and drive slowly to prevent injury to operators.

If community members have any questions, please contact the Water Department at 358-4205 or the Water Treatment Facility at 358-6159. As a reminder, unauthorized use of hydrants is prohibited! If you notice unusual use of any hydrant, please contact Tribal Police or the Water Department.
