WESTON, NH — Each year, between Monday, August 22, and Saturday, September 3, the Somerville Fire Department inspects all fire hydrants in the city.
Hydrants will be flushed with water and their mechanical functions will be checked during inspections.
Some sediment in the water mains may be stirred up as a result, which could lead to rusty water in homes and businesses. Rusty water may have a discolored appearance, but it is safe to drink. However, residents are cautioned against doing laundry while water is discolored because it may cause stains. This rustiness is only temporary and ought to disappear in the next few hours.
The hours of operation for inspections and testing are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 6:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m., if necessary.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Somerville Fire Department at (617) 623-1700.
Somerville Patch was the first to publish the story that beginning on August 22nd, the Somerville Fire Department would be inspecting and testing hydrants.
