Fire Hydrant Flow Testing to Continue April 14

Russell City Fire DepartmentThe Russell City Fire Department will continue flow testing fire hydrants April 14.

Flow testing will be conducted in two areas April 14 through April 18. The areas will be from Main Street to Lincoln Street and from 9th Street to Highway 40.

The testing will allow the city to find any potential problems with the hydrants as well as perform maintenance on the water system by flushing the water lines to remove any sediment.

This clearing of sediments may cause your water to be discolored for a period of time. It could cause issues with taste, clothes washing and other water use.

To help prevent any problems with use of your water during and after the flush, you may want to run your water for several minutes before using it to make sure residual sediments have been completely flushed through.

Affected residents will be notified by the Fire Department with orange door hangers.

If you have any questions, please call the Fire Department at 483-7111.
