Binghamton’s Water Department conducts semi-annual hydrant flushing


BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – Starting APRIL 15, 2019, the City of Binghamton Water Distribution Department will conduct a City wide hydrant flushing and testing.

  • Days of the Week; Monday – Thursday – 8 AM – 7:30 PM
  • Friday 8 AM – 3:30PM

Water discoloration may be evident at various times during this period and you may experience low pressure at the time.  Nonetheless, the water will remain safe for use.

Hydrant flushing and testing is conducted twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall and ensures that the City’s water lines are fully functional for purposes of private use, fire protection and other services.

NOTE: Please check your cold water supply before using any water in your home.  For a short period of time, it may be necessary to run your cold water only to clear your service.

For more on hydrant and flushing, please call the City of Binghamton’s Water Department at (607) 772-7219.
