Starting on Monday, January 9, the city's Public Works Department continues its annual fire hydrant flow testing next week in neighborhoods to the east and west of Masters Dr., south of and including Vista Cove and north of the FEC railroad crossing. The testing, expected to last two weeks, is scheduled to occur Monday-Friday, 8:00am-3:00pm each day the first week, and then, starting on January 17 will be 8:00am-4:00pm excluding holidays.
Signs will be posted in the areas of testing to advance notice to the public that hydrants in the area are being tested.
During the testing, customers may notice reduced water pressure and possibly discolored water. While the water will be safe, it is recommended that cold water faucets be run for five to ten minutes if discoloration of water is noticed. This should result in the water running clear. Please check water quality prior to running laundry. If the discolored water does not clear up after running, please call 904.825.1040.
