San Lorenzo Valley Water District’s annual flushing program for the District wraps up this month, finishing a roughly three-month-long process meant to ensure quality water for customers and prolong the District’s infrastructure.

Crews finished the program by flushing water mains in the Lompico and Manana Woods areas, the final zones in this year’s effort. The annual program removes iron and manganese deposits that accumulate in the District’s water distribution system.

Mandated by the State, the process involves opening hydrants and releasing water to clean the inside of the pipes. Though that might appear to waste water, the flushing process is important as it maintains water quality and ensures the integrity of the water distribution system.
