Why do Town employees operate hydrants?

Hydrants are opened twice per year to clear out sediment and keep the hydrants in good working order in case of fire. Some hydrants at the edges of the city limits where water is not running through the lines at high volumes are also flushed more regularly in order to maintain water quality.
