Carrollton Utilities will flush fire hydrants on the City of Carrollton water system Thursday.

Fire hydrant flushing will begin around 8 a.m. and will finish by 5 p.m. Carrollton Utilities suggests that laundry should not be washed while crews are flushing the hydrants as some staining of clothes could occur.

Flushing of the hydrants is done each year at this time to remove sediment and to make sure all hydrants are working properly.
