The Public Works department will be street sweeping the week of May 10-14.
Please look out for the no parking signs and don't assume once the sweeper does one pass your street is done, sometimes it takes 2 passes to get the street clean. You can assist in making this successful by utilizing off street parking if you have the ability that week even if you don't live on the no parking posted streets so the crew can clean to the curb. Also clean up any large sticks along your street so the sweeper operator doesn't have to keep stopping to move them. Thank you for your cooperation. ... See MoreSee Less

CAPITAL REGION WATER BEGINS ANNUAL FIRE HYDRANT FLUSHING AND INSPECTION PROGRAM
HARRISBURG (April 6, 2021): Capital Region Water has begun its annual fire hydrant flushing and inspection program as of Monday, April 5, 2021. It is expected to take eight weeks to reach all 1,800 fire hydrants in Capital Region Water’s service area.
Why is this needed? Annual fire hydrant flushing and inspections are critical to maintaining high quality drinking water. Flushing removes buildup in fire hydrants and water mains. Crews also inspect each hydrant to ensure reliable use for fire protection. Capital Region Water quickly repairs any issues with fire hydrants to keep them in service.
How will this affect my water service? Fire hydrant flushing may cause a temporary discoloration of water and a temporary reduction in water pressure. The discoloration is not harmful and can be flushed by running cold water through a faucet, preferably at the highest point in your residence. Customers can call 888-510-0606 or email email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
Flushing Phases: Flushing will take place in 15 phases and will begin at Reservoir Park and progress out toward Capital Region Water’s service area boundaries. You can track hydrant flushing progress online at capitalregionwater.com/hydrantflushing.
Public Notification: Capital Region Water will be using its automated message system (Everbridge), Nextdoor.com, and social media to notify customers as the flushing program progresses. Customers can sign up to receive automated messages about hydrant flushing by subscribing to “Alerts” at capitalregionwater.com/alerts. You can also sign up over the phone by calling Capital Region Water at 888-510- 0606. Capital Region Water did not perform flushing in 2020 due to the pandemic. As a result, some flushing zones may take longer than previous years. Additionally, some water may be discolored for longer. The discoloration is not harmful and can be flushed by running cold water through a faucet, preferably at the highest point in your residence.
In addition to the flushing, Capital Region Water is installing hydrant poles throughout the service territory. These five-foot-long fiberglass rods with reflective bands help firefighters locate hydrants easily. The poles can be especially important to find hydrants buried under snow in winter. ...
