The Belle Vernon Municipal Authority conducts flushing of the hydrants twice per year. The flushing is designed to accomplish many aspects of providing safe water to our customers. Flushing the main lines prevents any discoloration of water in the pipes therefore providing the customer with safe, good tasting water. Another aspect flushing provides is evacuating the system of different disinfectants during the disinfectant transition period. In the summer months, May to October the Westmoreland County Municipal Authority, MAWC, our water supplier, utilizes Chloramines to disinfect the drinking water. This is a combination of Ammonia and Chlorine, which provides extended disinfection when temperatures are warm or hot and also helps to reduce the Chlorine taste and smell in the drinking water. In the winter months, October to May, MAWC utilizes Free Chlorine due to the temperature being cold, giving extended disinfecting time and increased detention time for Chlorine residual in the drinking water. Customers may notice a Chlorine taste and smell in the water during this time. Along with the website notification, the Belle Vernon Municipal Authority makes every attempt to notify customers of flushing dates and times. An advertisement in the local paper, The Mon Valley Independent, is published about a week prior to flushing as well as an automated calling system, Swift-reach, contacts every customer that has given us a valid phone number upon initially signing up for water service.
