St. Bernard FD to inspect hydrants April 1

FOX 8 received this news release from St. Bernard Parish Government Tuesday afternoon:

The St. Bernard Parish Fire Department will commence Fire Hydrant Inspections on Monday, April 1, 2013. Throughout the parish individual fire hydrants will be opened for approximately two minutes to record water pressure and flow readings. 

Inspections will be completed between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Monday through Friday. 

This is a necessary procedure performed twice a year to ensure that all fire hydrants in the parish work properly. Residents may experience rusty water during this testing. By running water for five minutes the rust should be flushed and clear up. 

The Fire department would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
