Fire Hydrant and Waterline Flushing Has Begun in Worcester County



Hydrant Flush

The Water and Wastewater Division of Public Works began its semi-annual program for Fire Hydrant flushing waterlines in these areas: Mystic Harbour, Bayside Landings, Assateague Point, and West Ocean City, Deer Point, and other areas.

The purpose of this program is to remove any accumulated sediment from the lines and to ensure the hydrants are operational. Below are the proposed dates for the flushing of the waterlines, and please be advised that these dates are subject to change.

  • May 4 – 7 flushing is underway in the Bayside Landings, Lewis Road, Assateague Point, and Route 611 to Airport Road
  • May 10 – 14 Mystic Harbour, Deer Point, Ocean Reef, Bayvista I & II, Whispering woods, Oyster Harbor, and West Ocean City

Please be aware that, even on dates the water lines in your section are not being flushed, it is still possible to experience discolored water. If area residents notice that their water becomes cloudy during these times, please allow the water to run for a few minutes until it becomes clear.

For more information, call the Water and Wastewater Division at (410) 641-5251.
