The Hot Springs Fire Department will be performing hydrant flow testing beginning between 7 and 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 15, weather permitting, in the following areas:
Edgewater Circle; Kittleberger Court; Burchwood Bay and Secluded coves; Lakeshore (1000-2200 block), Rivers, and Buster Reed drives; Oak Bend Loop; Havelock Place; Westport Point; Burchwood Bay (500-900 block), Chapel Hill, Knollwood Lodge, Ledgerwood, and Twin Points (900-1200 block) roads; John Duncan, Moonlight Bay, Port-Au-Prince, Starlite Bay, Sunset Bay, and Waverly streets; Burchwood Bay Terrace
During hydrant maintenance and testing, water lines are flushed in order to test hydrant flow and water pressure levels for fire control purposes. The process also helps maintain the integrity of the City’s water distribution system, flushing out sediment or deposits that may naturally occur over time. Water customers in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of their water. If this takes place, customers are advised to clear the pipes in their home or business by running all the water faucets for a few minutes, and to postpone laundry as the discolored water can stain clothes. This discoloration usually lasts no more than a few hours, affecting only the appearance of the water, not the taste or quality. If discoloration lasts more than 24 hours, contact the Utilities Service Center at 501-321-6200.
