Unidirectional Flushing Programs

Aging infrastructure with tuberculated pipes can be a detriment to water quality if not properly maintained, putting increasing pressure on communities to deliver high-quality drinking water.

State Guidelines within the New England region recommend Public Water Systems undergo annual system-wide flushing as an effective and economical solution for removing sediments, non-solidified deposits, loose corrosion by-projects (tuberculation), organic growth, and all other extraneous matter. Environmental Partners assists communities with unidirectional flushing programs for their distribution systems, coupling the use of hydraulic modeling and technology in its creation to continue to ensure clean and safe drinking water for customers, and lower maintenance and upkeep costs for municipalities.
