[ARCHIVED] Fire hydrant flow testing for April 19

Hydrant Flow Testing graphic

The Hot Springs Fire Department will be performing hydrant flow testing beginning between 7 and 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 19, weather permitting, in the following areas: 

Greenwood Avenue; Airport (100-600 block) and Albert Pike (1600 block) roads; and Bayles, Brenda, Burroughs, Chess, Dexter, Ira, Main, Plain, Richard (200-300 block), S. Patterson, W. St. Louis (1200-1800 block) and Wynn streets

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. 

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.
