This lesson will focus on the importance of flushing and maintaining water quality. A well planned and systematically executed flushing program can decrease water age in dead ends of a distribution system, can restore chlorine residuals, can remove sediments and other deposits, and result in overall improvement in water quality. Based on this premise of water quality, this lesson will also focus on main breaks and cross connections, describes how these events can compromise water quality in the distribution system and provides solutions to the most common challenges from the field.

Participants will learn:

·        To describe the importance of flushing

·        To prepare a simple checklist for flushing a hydrant

·        To identify the components in developing a flushing program

·        To preserve water quality when responding to a water main break

·        To describe the difference between proactive and reactive responses

·        To describe what a cross connection is and recognize a cross-connection

·        To describe the seriousness of cross-connections

·        To describe requirements for cross-connection control

·        To outline the emergency response in the event of a backflow
