HENDERSON, KY 5/17/21– The Henderson Fire Department has begun annual fire hydrant testing and inspecting. Tests are expected to be completed by Friday, June 4.
Testing will be conducted between 7AM and 5PM except for the central business district, which will be tested after 5PM Residents could experience a slight loss in water pressure for a short amount of time when hydrants in their area are being tested.
The Fire Department also advises that before using any water during this time, check to be sure there is no discoloration. If a discoloration in water is noted after testing in your area, please flow your cold water taps until the water clears. Do not flow any hot water until the discoloration has cleared. This will prevent the discolored water from entering your hot water system.
The Henderson firefighters appreciate your patience and understanding as they perform this annual task.
