Town of Kenly Public Service Announcement - Hydrant Flow Testing
Beginning on Monday, June 15, 2015, the Kenly Volunteer Fire Department will begin conducting flow testing on all hydrants in the Town of Kenly. This project will be conducted throughout the month June. Flow testing will normally occur between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM. We apologize for any inconvenience that may be caused by daytime flow testing. During the flow testing, water customers may experience low to no water pressure and/or discolored water. These conditions result from the dislodging of materials in the water distribution mains. The discoloration of the water is not harmful and will disappear shortly. However, it is strongly recommended that water customers refrain from laundering clothing while the water is discolored. Washing clothes with discolored water, which is caused by iron, may result in permanent stains on some fabrics. Kenly residents are advised to check their water prior to doing household chores such as laundry, washing dishes or bathing. Residents who experience any unusual water clarity problems after the hydrants are flushed are encouraged to turn on a cold-water faucet outside of the house and let it run for 5 to 10 minutes. This will normally clear up the agitated water from the service line to the home. Flow testing of fire hydrants is done to identify the amount of water a certain fire hydrant can deliver during an emergency situation. This service is done on an annual basis so problems can be identified and resolved. The annual flow testing and maintenance of hydrants is also an important component of the Insurance Service Office grading of fire protection for a community which results in lower fire insurance premiums for your home and business property. Flushing notifications will be sent automatically if you have a listed phone number.
Thank you for your cooperation.
