firefighters will be inspecting and conducting water flow testing of the City’s
fire hydrants. These activities are performed annually to assure adequate water
is available for fire suppression needs.
a fire hydrant is in your yard, please be sure that it is clear of
obstructions. The Florida Fire Prevention Code states: “Hydrants shall be clear
from growth, vegetation, trash, fences, vehicles or storage of other materials
that would obstruct a fire hydrant and hinder or prevent its immediate use by
the fire department.”
flow testing procedure requires firefighters to open fire hydrants and flow
water for several minutes to obtain accurate flow pressures. This
procedure may cause tap water in the area to become discolored or cloudy.
This is a temporary condition that can be corrected by letting the tap water
run until clear, which could take a few minutes. If the water remains
discolored after a few minutes of flowing, please contact Ormond Beach Public
Works at 386-676-3220.

May 1, 2018 – June 15, 2018
