hydrant flush

MANSFIELD -- The Mansfield Fire Dept. will begin a fire hydrant flow testing and flushing program, starting on Monday, June 7.

The program will continue throughout the summer until all hydrants have been tested and flowed, the department said in an emailed press release.

Personnel will begin testing and flushing hydrants in the southern part of Mansfield and work their way north to the airport.

Testing will normally be conducted between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.. Citizens may experience temporary low flow pressure or water discoloration.

During times of testing, hydrants could be left open and continue to flow until testing is complete.

The city's water repair and utility collections department will answer residents' questions and concerns.

All fire stations and the water repair department have packets of rust out. All changes to the testing schedule can be found on the city’s website.
