Fire Hydrant Flushing

Lake Elmo Public Works Staff will be flushing dead end hydrants beginning Tuesday, October 3, 2022 and lasting the remainder of the week.

Unlike our spring flushing, not all hydrants will be flushed during this time.  The flushing of hydrants may cause some fluctuation of water pressure and/or discolored water and particles to flow in into homes. If this does occur, cold water should be ran to clear household water lines.

If you have any questions, please contact the Lake Elmo Public Works at 651-747-3940.
