[ARCHIVED] Testing of city’s hydrants underway

Annual fire hydrant maintenance

Testing is underway on the city’s 2,724 fire hydrants. Each hydrant will be tested as part of a citywide annual maintenance program to ensure servable hydrants are fully functional. Hydromax USA is the company performing the annual maintenance and will be easily recognizable in uniforms and marked vehicles. Crews will begin on the beachside and work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, weather permitting. Testing is scheduled to be completed by Sept. 30.

Will service be interrupted?
In most cases, residents and businesses will not notice any changes to their water service during the testing procedure; however, due to varying velocities and flow rates in the water system, customers may experience a slight water coloration. If this happens, cold water faucets should be opened for a short time until the water runs clear. This discoloration is not a health hazard; however, natural sediment stirred up during the procedure could cause laundry staining.

During previous hydrant maintenance, a few residential areas were identified with minor water quality issues (Cardinal Estates, Cedar Highlands and Pelican Bay). Electronic message boards will be placed in advance of testing to notify utility customers within these service areas.  

For more information or if you have questions about your water, call (386) 671-8815.
