More Information About Flushing

During the flushing season, most crews work between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with one crew working at night from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., primarily in the business area.

What is the Water Main (Hydrant) Flushing Program?

To improve water quality and minimize discoloration, water mains are comprehensively flushed by a technique known as Conventional flushing. The procedure is performed in warm-weather months and involves the systematic opening and closing of hydrants, one section of main at a time, to force the water through the pipes at high velocity, removing accumulated mineral sediment until the water is clear. The operation can take from a few minutes to over an hour, although most last about 30 minutes.

How Will Flushing Affect Water Service?

When flushing crews are working close to your residence or business, you may experience periods of very low pressure or even a complete stoppage of service. Flushing operations may also lead to discolored water, which can be drawn into homes and businesses if the water is being used during or immediately following the flushing. Such events should affect customers for a few hours at most. The discoloration is caused by iron (red color) or manganese (black color) particles being dislodged from the water main which can stain porcelain and laundry. If discoloration occurs, open the cold tap nearest the water meter—usually a basement sink—to full flow until the water runs clear. In some situations this may take 5 to 10 minutes. It is also advised that you make sure your water is clear before doing laundry or other projects for which discolored water could cause problems.

A precise schedule of flushing operations is difficult to determine more than a day or two in advance. If you wish to be notified before work will be done in your area, please call Donald Van Leuven at 744-2515

We ask for your patience and understanding during this critical main cleaning process.

Welcome to the Town of Crawford

Welcome to the Town of Crawford website.  We are all very happy to be able to offer our residents and visitors an internet connection designed to be informative and helpful.  We hope that our website will make interaction with Town government more accessible.

I am pleased to present the Town’s 2018 Budget for your consideration.  Despite the poor economic climate and increased costs in many areas we have continued to control costs in the areas that we can control as well as work with the state and others to control excessive costs that are mandated.  This year Town residents will see no increase in their taxes.  The general tax rate consisting of the Highway and most other departments will be under the New York State Property Tax Cap for the fifth year in a row.

This was accomplished without layoffs or decreases in services to the public.  Police funding was increased as well as services to the youth of our community and our seniors.  The Town has been recognized by the Pine Bush School District and the County of Orange as providing outstanding youth services and our facilities are known and used extensively by our local sports programs.  During 2017 events that support our local business owners have been increased and we look to improve on support of the Arts and attracting dining establishments in Pine Bush.  I would like to take this time to thank the many employees who worked this past year with us to find ways to save money and be more efficient while maintaining services to our residents.  For 2018 the Town is pleased to announce several new projects including expanding the new walking trail as well as a new playground and restroom facilities at the Town Park in Pine Bush.  Also included in the 2018 budget is revitalization of the Bullville area of the Town.  Finally I want to thank the Town Board and the Town of Crawford taxpayers for all their support and hard work to make our Town a great place to work and live and keeping it affordable in these difficult economic times.  As always feel free to call my office at any time with suggestions and ideas or attend any one of our board meetings.
