Each year we receive numerous calls from residents regarding our annual fire hydrant flow testing. Attached please find a notice from the Birmingham Fire Department regarding this year's schedule for hydrant flow testing and what residents can do if they have discolored water. The City wants to emphasize this process does not pose a health problem or impact the quality of the water. Flow testing is one of the ways the City uses to ensure hydrants are operable and give the proper water flow when needed. For more information go to bhamgov.org/hydrants.
