Syracuse Fire Department will be conducting annual fire hydrant flow testing over the next several months. During the flushing process, you may notice a drop in water pressure, and the water may become slightly discolored after testing. If you experience discolored water, please run one or more faucets for a couple of minutes until the water is clear again. The discolored water is nonhazardous.
Due to the complexity of this project and the unpredictable nature of emergency services, it is very difficult to determine which day testing will be conducted in a specific area.
Additionally, we are sensitive to the drought conditions this year and will do our best to minimize water flow during this very important testing process. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation and please be patient with us during this operation, as we are working to maintain the level of fire safety that you have come to expect.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the fire department at 801-614-9614.
