Beginning Monday, June 29, 2020, through Friday, October 2, 2020, Roanoke County Fire and Rescue Department will be flow testing hydrants at various locations in the Town of Vinton.  The flow tests will take place Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather and schedule permitting.

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.

For more information on the flow testing, please call 540-983-0629.
