Hydrant Flushing

The Baker City Public Works Department will begin its annual fire hydrant testing and flushing the week of June 8 - 12. It is expected that the testing will continue for approximately two to three weeks. This testing is done annually to ensure all hydrants are functioning properly and are delivering water at the correct pressure and volume.
Through this testing/flushing process small silt-like particles may become “stirred up” in the lines. These are particles which have settled in less active water lines. Water may appear yellow or cloudy as a result of this flushing process. If your water has this appearance, please run your faucet full force for five minutes. After such time, the water should again run clear. If your water continues to be cloudy you may contact the Baker City Water Department at (541) 523-6541.
