The City of Douglas Fire Department will begin testing hydrants on Monday, May 20, 2019 and will continue through Friday, May 24, 2019. Hydrants will be tested in the Northeast section of Douglas which includes City Ward 1. Hydrant testing will start at 9:00 p.m. each night, when there is minimum traffic, and continue until 4:00 a.m. each day.
During hydrant testing the water may become rusty or cloudy, if water discoloration occurs, let the water run until it runs clear. This will clear the line of any rust that might have dislodged from the pipes. Before washing clothes or cooking, please let the water run clear before using it.
If there are questions or concerns, please call the City of Douglas Fire Department at 912-384-4815.
