More Information About Flushing

During the flushing season, most crews work between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. 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 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 an hour, although most last about 30 minutes.

How Will Flushing Affect Water Service?

When flushing crews 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 the flushing. Such events should affect customers for a few hours at 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 the 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 is 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. If you wish to be notified before work will be done in your area, please call Water Department at (845) 744-2515

We ask for your patience and understanding during this critical main cleaning process.

Water Main Break - 04/11/2023

There was a major water main break at the carwash on Boniface and we continue to work on it. Service should be restored by early evening.

Water Main Break - 04/11/2023

There was a major water main break at the carwash on Boniface and we hope to be restored by early afternoon.

The Town of Crawford is pleased to announce that we are in the process of transitioning our water meter reading system to a 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.

We are asking that you contact our Water & Sewer Department at 845-744-2515 to schedule an appointment to have your Cellular endpoint installed.  Be sure to leave your name, address, account  and telephone number, an employee from our contracting company, JCO will return your call to set up an appointment day and time.

This is the Town of Crawford water district calling with an important announcement. We recently had unauthorized use of our fire hydrants which caused the water to become discolored and rusty. We have already flushed several lines clearing up much of the problem. This Thursday July 7th, we will be flushing Holland Avenue, Main Street, Center Street, and Hueg Place. If you experience discoloring after the flushing please open an outside faucet and run it until the water clears before doing any laundry or running any inside faucets. If you have any further questions please call the water department at 744-2515. As a further update we hope to have our new filtration system for the entire hamlet in place by September 1st. Thank you for your patience while we address this situation
