Fire hydrant testing begins on Sunday, Sept. 12, in Wellington

Hydrant testing will start on Sunday, Sept. 12, and will continue on weekdays only until all of the hydrants are tested. At times, due to unforeseen circumstances, changes to the schedule will be necessary.

Announcements for any changes will be made as soon as possible.

Crews will be trying to keep the water as clear as possible.  Some “dirtying” of the water may occur in the area that is being tested. There's also the possibility that exists for adjacent areas to receive some of the “dirty” water.
