10/4/21, 8:53 AM 10/4/21, 8:53 AM Flow Testing on Fire Hydrants in Housing Area The Fort Detrick Fire & Emergency Services will be conducting flow testing on fire hydrants located in housing from October 9 – 24. This testing allows the fire department to identify potentially closed valves, heavy pipe-wall deposits, or other problems within the system that could degrade water supply in the event of an emergency. During testing, housing occupants may observe discolored water due to the disturbance of water in the mains. This is a temporary condition and should not be a cause for alarm as the water clarity will return to normal rather quickly. The Fort Detrick Fire & Emergency Services thanks you in advance for your understanding, support, and cooperation.
