Please keep in mind that not every hydrant is flushed in every area each cycle. The City of Buffalo has 1062 public hydrants within city limits.
What to Expect
A progress map will be published on a daily basis until the flushing is complete. Hydrant flushing (PDF) is done in the spring and fall to ensure that hydrants are in working order for fire protection and to remove mineral deposits that may accumulate in the water distribution system.
