HENDERSON, Ky (WEHT) The Henderson Fire Department will begin annual fire hydrant testing on Monday. Tests are expected to be completed in approximately three weeks.

Testing will be done between 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. each day during those three weeks. If the testing period wraps up sooner than anticipated, notification will take place

The Fire Department advises that before using any water during this time, especially when cooking and doing laundry, check to be sure there is no discoloration.

If a discoloration in water is noted after testing in your area, please flow your cold water taps until the water clears.  Do not flow any hot water until the discoloration has cleared.  This will prevent the discolored water from entering your hot water system.

Water pressure may be affected during the testing period in areas where the hydrants are being flushed, so don’t be concerned if you experience low water pressure.
