BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. (WBOY) — The City of Bridgeport will be flushing fire hydrants over the course of the next two weeks.

First Week

  • Allison Avenue

The City said the work is weather dependent and that it’s unlikely, but possible that residents’ water may be discolored, cloudy, low in pressure, or that water service could be temporarily lost. The City said it is not responsible for any damage caused by discolored water and advised anyone who wants more information to call 304-842-8231.

Why could it impact my water?

Berkeley County, West Virginia explains on its website that flushing hydrants can “stir up” the oxygen in water, causing air bubbles, or result in temporary sediment in the water supply, causing discoloration.

Avoid doing laundry while crews are on your street if you notice your water is discolored, Berkeley County advises.
