The City of Fort Lupton flushes hydrants on a schedule twice yearly and as needed. Hydrant flushing keeps the interior of our water pipes clean, which leads to excellent water quality and ensures hydrants work properly. Brief water discoloration is normal during hydrant flushing. Our water still meets or exceeds all state and federal standards of the Safe Drinking Water Act. If you notice discolored water, feel free to run your tap until the discoloration disappears. The water is still safe to drink.
