More Information about Flushing:

During the flushing program, most crews work between 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday

What is the Water Main (Hydrant) Flushing Program?

To improve water quality and minimize discoloration, water mains are comprehensively flushed by a technique known as Conventional flushing. The procedure is performed in warm-weather months and involves the systematic opening and closing of hydrants, one section of the main at a time, to force the water through the pipes at high velocity, removing accumulated mineral sediment until the water is clear. The operation can take from a few minutes to over hour, although most last about 30 minutes.

How will Flushing Affect Water Services?

When flushing crew are working close to your residence or business, you may experience periods of very low pressure or even a complete stoppage of service. Flushing operations may also lead to discolored water, which can be drawn into homes and businesses if the water is being used during or immediately following flushing. Such events should affect customers for a few hours at the most. The discoloration is caused by iron (red color) or manganese (black color) particles being dislodged from the water main which can stain porcelain and laundry. If discoloration occurs, open cold tap nearest the water meter-usually a basement sink-to full flow until the water runs clear. In some situations, this may take 5 to 10 minutes. It also advised that you make sure your water is clear before doing laundry or other projects for which discolored water could cause problems. A precise schedule of flushing operations is difficult to determine more than a day or two in advance. We ask for your patience and understanding during this critical main cleaning process.


The Town of Crawford is pleased to announce that we are in the process of transitioning our water meter reading system to an LTE Cellular endpoint system to efficiently and securely deliver meter reading data to us via a reliable cellular network.  You will be able to monitor your own water use via an “App”, accessible on your phone, tablet or computer.  You will also be able to set up alarms for excessive use, leaking/ dripping faucets, toilets, etc.  If left undetected, could unnecessarily increase your bill.

We are asking that you contact our Water & Sewer billing department at 845-744-8876 to verify what type of meter and meter reading system you currently have to then schedule an appointment to have your cellular endpoint installed.  An adult will need to be available to let our technician in to make the necessary changes to upgrade you to the cellular endpoint. 


Bills are sent out quarterly and the 2024 rates are as follows:
Water Rates-$7.00 per thousand gallons within district, 3X rate outside district
Sewer Rates-$7.00 per thousand gallons within district, 3X rate outside district
