HYDRANT FLOW TESTING
South Oldham Fire Department conducts fire hydrant tests annually April thru November — to ensure the fire hydrants are operating properly and can be used in the event of a fire or other emergency that requires water.
The fire hydrant flows also help to improve water quality by turning over water in low-usage water mains. The increased flow of water from the fire hydrants during testing occasionally causes the scouring of manganese that has built up on the lining of water mains. The scouring can result in discolored water at the customer’s tap.
• The discolored water is bacteriologically safe but can stain clothing.
• DO NOT WASH clothing in the discolored water. Check for discolored water in your washing machine before washing clothes during the designated fire hydrant testing times.
