The Carroll County Bureau of Utilities will conduct routine flushing of fire hydrants in
the southeast section of the Freedom District in Eldersburg during the month of July. Affected areas of flushing include the subdivisions of Eldersburg Estates, Harvest Farms, Tydings Acres, Carroll Highlands and Freedom Village.

Flushing will take place between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays starting Wednesday, July 6, and continue through Friday, July 29. Residents may experience minimum loss of pressure and cloudy water lasting up to an hour when the hydrant is flushed in the immediate area. Turning the tap on and running water for several minutes will clear the lines. It is advisable to refrain from using high water volume appliances such as washing machines, dishwashers, etc., during the periods of low pressure and cloudy water.

Anyone with questions can contact the Bureau of Utilities at 410-386-2164.
