To ensure hydrants are operable and give the proper water flow when needed, the Birmingham Fire Department conducts annual flow testing in May of each year. This testing provides the Department with the flow pressure and volume of water that is expected from each hydrant. Additionally, it reveals hydrants with mechanical problems. Please note this process may cause discolored water. Download the flow testing notice for more information and to view a map of this year's testing regions.
