Cartersville Fire Department will be partnering with Cartersville Water Department over the next several weeks as the fire hydrant testing process begins for 2011. Since hydrants do not get used on a regular basis, testing the hydrants helps identify any problems so they can be corrected, saving CFD valuable time in the event of a fire. Testing will always take place Monday through Friday and will be completed by noon to allow ample time for any challenges that are encountered.

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 run water until it is clear prior to washing any laundry.
