Fire Hydrant Flushing
Attention Residents:
The Riverview Fire Department is conducting its annual flushing and winterizing of fire hydrants
around town. While most residents will not notice anything unusual, some may have a brief
change in water pressure, and some may also have discoloration of the water. This should be
corrected by running the cold faucet for a few minutes until the water runs clear.
The neighborhoods west of Fort Street and north of Sibley have been completed. This week,
the northeast quadrant of the city (east of Fort St. and north of Sibley) will be flushed. The
neighborhoods south of Sibley and west of Fort St. (the Forest) will be addressed at the end of
this week with completion next week.

Project Planning Process Capital Improvements Program
Each year an updated version of the Capital Improvements Program (CIP) is prepared which reflects proposed improvements over the ensuing five-year period. Once Council has prioritized prospective projects, those scheduled for the following year are authorized for feasibility study. At that point, the Engineering Department / DPW surveys the project areas, prepares preliminary designs, evaluates alternatives, holds a neighborhood meeting, and presents a recommendation to Council in the form of a feasibility report.
