Beginning at 9 am on Thursday August 8th the Utility Department will be testing fire hydrants on the North Side of town beginning at Elkins Lane and continuing until completed. This work is not part of our hydrant flushing program but part of a new requirement established by the DEP aimed at overall improvements to water systems nationwide. Temporary harmless discolored water may occur as hydrants are opened and closed. We apologize in advance for this unavoidable situation and ask for your patience while we perform this necessary work. Work will take place only during normal business hours no weekend testing will occur.
