Hoquiam Water Department to Begin Cleaning Lines, Checking Hydrants

 Because the distribution system contains about 60 miles of pipe, it is expected to take one month to complete the flushing.  However, some portions of the water system require flushing on a more frequent basis. Water quality sampling throughout the distribution system helps staff determine which portions of the system should be scheduled more frequently for flushing each year.


For more information about the flushing program, call the Water Department at 360-637-6036 or email [email protected]
