Fire hydrant flushing will take place in Berlin Township between April 20 - May 20, 2015. There is no set street schedule of when the Fire Department will be flushing hydrants. The hydrants will be flushed according to crew availability. It is best to check your water quality for any sediment or discoloration during this time period before doing laundry, cleaning or cooking to be sure the water is clear.

If you accidentally wash or stain laundry with rusty water, DO NOT DRY THE CLOTHING. Go to your local home supply store or grocery where you can purchase agents designed to remove such stains and rewash the items.

We do not stock rust removal agents/detergents for residents and can offer no further assistance than the information on this page.

If you are not certain whether hydrant flushing has completed in your area, please feel free to contact the Berlin Township Fire Department at 740-548-6031


Once again the Berlin Township Fire Department will be participating in the 2015 Delaware County Fan Drive, at the request of People In Need (PIN).  The fan drive has provided a service to PIN that is greatly appreciated.  Please drop your new fans off, anytime at 2708 Lackey Old State Road.
