Hydrant testing this summer

News May 03, 2007 Flamborough Review

The City of Hamilton Public Works Department has launched its hydrant inspection and maintenance program.

The program, which involves the inspection of the city's 12,000 hydrants on a continual three-year-cycle, began in April 2007 and may run to November 2007. Each hydrant test takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

During a neighbourhood inspection, residents may temporarily experience low water pressure. In addition, the water may become discoloured during or after the inspection. City officials stress that the discolouration poses no health threat and should only last a short time. If you experience discoloured water, simply run your cold-water tap until it has cleared up.

Residents who experience discolouration for more than 10-15 minutes after a test can call Water Customer Service at 905-546-4426.
