From the City of Binghamton Water/Sewer Department:
Starting Sept. 13, 2021 until completion , 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 – 3:30 PM
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.
