The City of Greenville is the process of flushing all of the fire hydrants.
Bill Grider, superintendent of public works, said the process is important in making sure the hydrants are operable when needed by the fire department.
Grider said the act of flushing the hydrants also scout the water mains and clean them of any debris or sediment that has settled in them. He said keeping fresher water in the system helps with taste and odor.
Grider said if you turn on a faucet during or just after flushing, you may notice discoloration, but the water is not harmful. It clears up within a few minutes.
The hydrant flushing is expected to continue until August 10.
