MFD to begin hydrant flow tests  Monday

The Morristown Fire Department will conduct flow tests on fire hydrants beginning Monday, June 14.

The flow tests will continue for four weeks.

These flow tests are required by the insurance service office in order to maintain the present insurance rates. Conducting these flow tests may result in temporary discoloration of water, but users can be assured that no harmful effects will be brought about to the water itself. Making these flow tests are a bi-yearly procedure and results in lower insurance rates for the residents and businesses of Morristown.

Residents are reminded not to place flowers or shrubs where they will obstruct the vision of hydrants from the roadway.

They are on the right-of-way and state law and city ordinance require they remain plainly visible.
