When the City of Binghamton flushes their hydrants, will it affect the water in my home?

It certainly can.  The Town of Binghamton purchases its water from the City of Binghamton, and unfortunately, the City usually does not notify us when they are doing maintenance such as flushing, drain work, repair to water breaks, etc. When the City does conduct work, it often leads to discoloration in our system. If you ever notice your water is discolored, we suggest you allow your cold water to run for 10 minutes to allow it to clear. If it doesn’t clear, call us. We do our best to notify residents when we are doing maintenance. Any maintenance questions can be directed to us at 669-4323.
