Cedar­town fire­fight­ers per­form­ing hy­drant test­ing

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - Staff re­ports

Take no­tice now that wa­ter com­ing out of the tap might look weird for a few mo­ments, but just leave the faucet run­ning for a few mo­ments or so to get rid of any cloudi­ness, ac­cord­ing to Cedar- town city of­fi­cials.

The city an­nounced in a brief re­lease it is the Cedar­town Fire Depart­ment’s in­ten­tion to con­duct yearly re­quired test­ing of fire hy­drants.

“Test­ing is re­quired to en­sure that the Cedar­town Fire Depart­ment main­tains their ISO (In­sur­ance Ser­vice Or­ga­ni­za­tion) rat­ings and for gen­eral res­i­dent safety and fire sup­pres­sion,” the re­lease stated. “Res­i­dents may ex­pe­ri­ence tem­po­rary wa­ter cloudi­ness. This can be re­solved by al­low­ing your tap to run sev­eral sec­onds af­ter turn­ing it on.”

Con­tact the City of Cedar­town at 770-748-3220 for more in­for­ma­tion or to re­port prob­lems if wa­ter does not re­turn to nor­mal af­ter run­ning the tap and let­ting the line clear of any cloudy liq­uid.
