Mayor Reginald Spinello advises Glen Cove residents that fire hydrants are going to be opened in the beginning of October for the semi-annual flushing of dead-end water mains. This is to get rid of accumulated dissolved mineral sediments in the water mains.
During the hydrant flushing period, residents may detect some water pressure fluctuation and water discoloration. The discoloration poses no health risk. Customers may choose to keep a supply of clear water in the refrigerator for drinking and cooking during periods of any discoloration in the water. Thank you all for your patience.
