Fire Hydrant Maintenance and Testing 4/1
The City of Venice has hired Hydromax USA to perform fire hydrant maintenance and testing throughout the City of Venice. Work is scheduled to begin on April 1 and be completed by Nov. 1. As part of the work, all fire hydrants within the City’s system will be flushed, flow tested, inspected, and receive routine maintenance. Residents should expect to see employees of Hydromax USA operating the fire hydrants. Employees of Hydromax USA may be identified by company logos on their vehicles and their uniforms.
Businesses and residents may briefly experience reduced water pressure while flushing is occurring. Some customers may experience temporary discoloration of their water after work is performed in their area. This is primarily due to silt that has become suspended in the water, and does not affect the safety of the water. Customers who experience water discoloration may clear their pipes by running water from their outside spigots for 3 to 5 minutes, then running indoor faucets.
