WSA Local Water System Flushing Schedule

Posted on September 5, 2015 at 12:40 AM

The Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority regularly flushes the water in various areas in order to clean out the system. This is done by opening a flsuhing point (usually a hydrant) and releasing the water in the system at high velocity. This improves the water quality and checks the hydrants at the same time.

Flushing typically is done between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. It tales about six hours, during which time there may be low water pressure, air bubbles in the lines and/or discoloration of the water. This may temporarily interfere with laundry or bathing. These conditions are not harmful and clear quickly after you let your tap run for a few minutes when flushing is over.

In Northern Fauquier, regularly scheduled flushing occurs in The Plains on the third Tuesday in May and November. In Marshall flushing takes place during the last week of March and September. In Paris it is done on the second Tuesday in February, May, August and November.

The Fauquier County Water and Sewer Authority can be reached at (540) 349-2092, or you can visit their website at

Anyone is welcome to shop, but the store is really for the needy, so taking things to re-sell is not allowed. If someone you know could use this great service, please pass this information along. If you have donations in good condition (no computers) please call (540) 253-5150 to arrange a pick-up or drop-off. Store hours are Tuesday 10-2 and Saturday 9-1.
