The Hooksett Village Water Precinct flushes fire hydrants throughout the Village area every spring and fall. The hydrant flushing program is very important for the maintenance of the water distribution system, including the water mains, hydrants and associated valves and fittings.
The Hooksett Village Water Precinct maintains an aggressive backflow prevention program to help protect its customers from unwanted contamination. Backflow is when water flows in the opposite direction from normal due to a change in pressures.
Testing & Treatment
In addition to the above activities, Hooksett Village Water Precinct treats water entering its distribution system (i.e. water mains) to further ensure the best water quality. Trace amounts of sodium hypochlorite are added for preventive disinfection purposes.
