At the beginning of 2020 fire hydrant maintenance and flushing schedules are determined for United Wappinger Water district and put on the Town website to keep the residents informed. According to our schedule and public notice on Monday April 13 the flushing program was to begin and end on May 1. In light of the current crisis caused by the Corona virus, concerns have risen about adding additional inconvenience to an already stressed community. After discussions with the Town water operators CAMO Pollution Control, and Supervisor Richard L. Thurston a determination was made to tentatively delay the start of the flushing program until May 4. This tentative date will be re-evaluated April 24 and hopefully a permanent schedule will be determined. It’s very important to note this delay will not affect the quality or quantity of the districts water supply.
