Brunswick County Bridge Construction Causes Weekend Lane Closure on U.S. 74/76

 

Raleigh—The inside lane of eastbound U.S. 74/76 near Leland just east of Malmo Loop Road in Brunswick County will be closed Friday, April 4, at 9 a.m. until Monday, April 7, at 6 a.m. for bridge deck preservation.  Weather permitting, North Carolina Department of Transportation crews plan to put latex modified concrete (LMC) on the bridge decking.
 
 
LMC seals the bridge roadway surface, making it last longer by protecting the deck and substructure from water damage.

 

The impact on traffic is expected to be low and no detour will be in place.

 

Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling in the area and to expect delays. NCDOT reminds motorists to watch signs for construction information, stay alert and obey the posted speed limit.

Fire Hydrant Flushing completed in March 2014

Public Notice

Fire Hydrant Flushing

The Leland Fire Department will be flushing fire hydrants in Brunswick Forest beginning March 20 2014 

Hydrant Flushing Operations

The hydrant-flushing program is very important to the maintenance of the Towns domestic water distribution system.  Leland Fire Department water technicians systematically open hydrants throughout the Development to allow water to flow at a high velocity through the distribution mainlines. This operation serves the following purposes:

  •         Enhances water quality by removing sediments from inside the mainline and flushing them out through the hydrant.
  •         Identifies malfunctions of the hydrant and related valves.
  •         Helps determine weaknesses in the water distribution system.
  •         Identifies inadequate water volumes and pressures in the mainlines.
  •         Helps determine fireflows at the hydrant.

 

You may encounter the following conditions during hydrant flushing operations:

  •         A temporary drop in the water pressure to your home or business.
  •         Rusty brown, or cloudy water. (Discolored water is not harmful. These conditions will subside in a few hours after the flushing is completed.)
  • Helpful Hints to Remember:
  •          Before the flushing operation begins:

-Fill a bottle or clean, plastic milk jug with fresh tap water and store it in the refrigerator to use for drinking and cooking.

-Do NOT wash white or light-colored laundry during the flushing operations.

  •          After the flushing operation is completed:

-Open the cold water faucets and let the water flow until it is clear. Turn off the faucets.

-Open the hot water faucets and let the water flow until it is clear. Turn off the faucets.

-When both hot and cold water are clear, the water is ready for use as normal.

-Check the faucet screens for trapped particles.

-Wash a load or two of dark-colored clothes first.

FAQ’s

Why is hydrant flushing necessary?

It enhances water quality by removing sediments from inside the mainline and flushing them out through the hydrant; identifies malfunctions of the hydrant and related valves; helps determine weaknesses in the water distribution system; identifies inadequate water volumes and pressures in the mainlines and helps determines fireflow adequacy.

 What should I do when Leland Fire Department crews are flushing hydrants in my area?

  •       Mainly, avoid using the dishwasher, washing machine. Don’t turn on the faucets (hot or cold). Wait until the operation is completed.
  •         If you are driving in the work zone, please drive carefully.

Why does my water look rusty or cloudy after hydrant flushing?

When a hydrant is opened, the water in the mainline will flow out at a high velocity. This creates a scouring action in the pipe and dislodges fine sediment particles that have accumulated in the pipe. The fine sediment mixes with the water,  turning the water a cloudy or rusty brown color. This mixture is discharged out of the hydrant.  There is no health hazard associated with the discolored water.  Remember, after the hydrant flushing operation, let your water clear a few hours before you use it.

 

Who do I call for more info?
