Neighborhood fire hydrant flushing begins Monday
Danville fire officials will begin flushing hydrants throughout the city Monday to ensure they will work in an emergency.
Signs will be posted in each area before flushing begins. Streets include adjacent areas and roadways. Rain and emergencies may delay testing. Flushing will be done between 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. on the following days:
Monday: Green Acres, Candlewood, Danville High School area.
Tuesday: East Main Street and Hill n Dale area.
Wednesday: Indian Hills, Lexington Road, Goggin area and Grabruck area.
Thursday: Shakertown Road area through North Sixth Street.
Friday: Streamland, Colonial and Brookcove subdivisions.
Hydrant flushing may cause discoloration of household water in or near the areas being tested, which is a result of iron deposits being disturbed during the flushing process. Iron deposits can build up inside pressure tanks, water heaters and water pipes. It occasionally breaks loose, causing rusty water when faucets are first opened. This happens especially when city or household water lines are disturbed and rust breaks loose from old pipes.
Customers are advised to check water for signs of discoloration prior to doing laundry. If you notice discoloration in the water, let it run until it clears before doing laundry. This usually takes less than five minutes. If laundry appears stained, keep the articles wet and rewash them using a rust-removing compound. Do not use bleach on stained laundry, as it will set the stain.
