Fire Hydrant Flow Testing
Flow Testing and Your Water
Due to fire hydrant flow testing you may notice that your water may become cloudy or has color. If you notice this condition, do not wash your clothes until the water has cleared up. Running cold water in your bathtub for 15 to 20 minutes should improve the water clarity. Once you have determined that your cold water is clear, please make sure to run your hot water to make sure that the cloudy water has not been pulled into your hot water tank.
Should you have any questions or concerns about your water, please call the Vinton Public Works Department at (540) 983-0646.
