Fire Hydrant Flushing In Brunswick Forest

Hydrant Testing in Brunswick Forest
 

Leland Fire Department will begin testing and inspecting the Town’s fire hydrants on Monday December 4, 2016. The testing is expected to be ongoing throughout the month of December. 

Residents may notice discolored tap water as Fire Department personnel flush the Town’s
fire hydrants. This annual testing is essential to maintain the Fire Department Class 6 fire
rating and to ensure that hydrants are operating efficiently for fire protection purposes.
Along with maintaining the fire rating, the testing monitors the “health” of the Town’s
water system, identifies weak areas in the system, stirs up materials that settle in the
hydrant, and cleans out the lines.

If you notice discoloration in your water, it is not a cause for concern. Residents are
encouraged to run water until it is clear before washing clothes or drinking it. In most
instances, the water will clear in approximately five minutes. If the discoloration persists,
residents should wait an hour and try again.
