[ARCHIVED] Flow testing notice for weekend

HOT SPRINGS -- Flow testing by the Hot Springs Fire Department will take place on Saturday, March 22 on Skyline Drive, Fairplay Drive and the 2500 block of Malvern Avenue. On Sunday, March 23, flow testing will proceed along Central Avenue, from Lakeland Drive south to Higdon Ferry Road.

During flow 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, 623-7483.
