When do we flush?

Carmichael Water District flushes the system primarily in the winter months when water demand is low. The District also flushes lines at a customer's request. During seasonal demand variations when the District operates wells and during project or emergency shutdowns the distribution lines may be affected. At these times, you may notice a discoloration of your water. The district will schedule flushing in affected areas on a regular basis as well as on an as-needed basis.
