Night Time Hydrant Flush by Washington Township 

Employees of Washington Township will be performing the semi-annual flushing of all fire hydrants along the public water system during the weeknights of October 1-6, 2017. If you observe Township employees exercising the valves and flushing the hydrants in front of your home during that period, please excuse the intrusion into your neighborhood. 

 The hydrants will be flushed to remove standing water and lubricated as part of an ongoing maintenance plan.  There may be a sudden drop in pressure as each hydrant is flushed.  This is normal, yet temporary, occurrence during this maintenance operation.  A slight staining may occur as a result of the flushing activity. To remedy this situation, customers are asked to let the cold water tap run until water clears.  What residents will be able to see are the rust deposits that have been loosened during the multiple acts of changing the velocity of the water through the main lines by opening and closing the hydrants. Should any questions arise, you are asked to call Washington Township Administrative Office at (814) 734-3117.


Washington Township Council will hold a public hearing at the Administration Building, 11800 Edinboro Road, Edinboro, PA 16412, on Tuesday, October 17, 2017, at 4:30 P.M. on the conditional use application by Rob Estok, for a proposed mini-warehousing as defined in the zoning ordinance at 5450 Rte. 6N, Edinboro, PA 16412, further identified as property index #45-18-38-18.

All interested persons are welcome to attend, and if you are a person with a disability and require an auxiliary aid, service, or other accommodations to participate, please call the Township Office at 814-734-3117 to discuss how we may best serve your needs.
