[ARCHIVED] Flow testing continues

Firefighters are performing flow testing today on fire hydrants in the following areas:Park Avenue from Gorge Road to 728 Park Avenue and Sleepy Valley Road to the City Limits; 1600 to 2200 block of Higdon Ferry Road; 100 to 300 block of Airport Road, 1300 block of Albert Pike Road, Alpine, Baber, Bayles, Brenda, Burroughs, Chess and Dexter streets; 1600 block of Malvern Avenue, Charteroak, Archwood and East Maurice streets.

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.
