With more than 1,400 fire hydrants in the city of Cartersville, the testing process has recently been re-evaluated and modifications have been made. The goal is to complete one-third of hydrants each year, establishing a three-year rotation for accurate flow data for the Water System. This modified rotation will also conserve water. Testing will always take place Monday through Friday and will be completed by noon to allow ample time for any challenges that are encountered. The city is working hard to keep all residents and businesses informed of when testing will be taking place in their area. Signs with dates will be placed in the applicable areas prior to testing, phone messages will be sent out using the Connect CTY system and the media will receive the schedules ahead of time.
This process should not cause any inconvenience to the public, however, occasionally, testing the hydrants does stir up some sediment in the pipes, causing some minor discoloration. If this occurs, the water is perfectly safe for drinking, but please run your water until it is clear prior to washing any laundry.
