[ARCHIVED] Flow testing continues

Beginning today and continuing as weather permits, Hot Springs Fire Department crews are conducting annual fire hydrant flow testing in the Emory Street, Alpine Street, and Higdon Ferry Road areas. Motorists are advised to approach work areas with caution.


During hydrant maintenance and testing, water lines are flushed in order to test hydrant flow and water pressure levels for fire control purposes. The process also helps maintain the integrity of the city’s water distribution system, flushing out sediment or deposits that may naturally occur over time. Water customers in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of their water. If this takes place, customers are advised to clear the pipes in their home or business by running all the water faucets for a few minutes, and to postpone washing clothes. This discoloration usually lasts no more than a few hours, affecting only the appearance of the water, and not the taste or quality. If discoloration lasts more than 24 hours, contact the Utilities Service Center, 321-6200.
