The fire department will be testing fire hydrants this spring according to the following schedule. The reason behind testing the fire hydrants is to make sure the hydrants work and to be sure they drain properly so they don’t freeze in the winter.
May 1 - 13
From (Needmore Road/Shoup Mill Road/Turner Road) north to the township line and township line east to west
May 15 - 27
From (Needmore Road/Shoup Mill Road/Turner Road) south to the township line and township line east to west
This type of testing can cause the water to turn rusty brown, so be sure to check your water before doing laundry during this period. After testing has been completed in your area, let sink water run until the discoloration has disappeared. Once there is no discoloration, it's safe to do laundry.
