Fire Hydrant Flushing in Coralville

Fire hydrant

The City of Coralville Water Department will flush fire hydrants in Coralville south of Interstate 80 starting in early October. Crews will work from east to west. Hydrant flushing is expected to last until mid-November, weather permitting. Hydrant flushing locations will be updated weekly as crews progress through Coralville.

As a result of hydrant flushing, residents in the vicinity may notice water running down the street, or a temporary discoloration of their water which does not affect the water safety. In the event of discolored water, run cold water from a faucet until the water clears.

Hydrant flushing is an annual water system maintenance practice that moves water through the pipelines fast enough to remove sediment, and allows the City to service fire hydrants and check water pressure. For more information, please contact the Coralville Water Department at 319.248.1770 or the Utility Billing Department at 319.248.1715.

Flushing status: 

  • The week of October 11, crews are finishing up hydrant flushing in the Iowa River Landing area. Then hydrant flushing will begin between 1st Avenue and 12th Avenue from east to west, from 2nd Street north to 10th Street.
  • The week of October 4, 2021, crews are flushing hydrants in the commercial business area starting at the east side of Highway 6 (2nd Street) at Rocky Shore Drive, working west to 1st Avenue.
