System Flushing

In accordance with industry best practice and Virginia Health Department recommendations, Rapidan Service Authority performs routine flushing of our various water distribution systems.

Planned flushing events are listed on our Calendar of Events; however, RSA service technicians may perform system flushing at any time.

Be aware that fluctuations in water pressure caused during flushing may disturb sediment in the distribution lines.  If we are flushing a hydrant near your home, do not be alarmed by brief changes in your water's clarity.  Rest assured that your water is safe to drink.

If you have questions about system flushing, please contact your local RSA office.
