As the picture shows, Madison Water Utility crews are already out clearing mineral sediment from over 800 miles of water mains around the city. A tall order indeed, and these faithful crews spend months and months moving from neighborhood to neignborhood, opening up over 2500 fire hydrants to flush iron and manganese and debris out of our city's water pipes. Reports state it is a tedious 8-9 month process from April till around Thanksgiving according to Shayne Santi at Madisons Water Utility offices. "The goal is to flush the whole city one way or another."
Previous years shifts in pumping water patternes were called into question when chemical analysis of maganese issues were brought to light, and giganic changes were made to revamp Madison's flushing plans. The result is our city has a focus that sets us apart from most Midwest Utility programs. Naturally occurring manganese here in Madison changed 11 years ago to what is termed " unidirectional flushing" which achieves a high velocity of water through the pipe and scours debris off the pipe walls and keeps it very clean.
Madison is on the forefront of doing unidirectional flushing and having a routine protocol for doing that," says Abigail Cantor a nationally recognized water chemistry expert. . "It's essential for achieving the best water quality that can be achieved.
Water main flushing in Madison started this year on April 4th. You can find out when Madison Utility Crews will be working in your neighborhood on Madison Water Utility's water main flushing page. Now an important question for you.
