Robbins Fire and Rescue hydrant testing

As part of meeting state requirements, Robbins Fire and Rescue started testing fire hydrants.

Fire hydrant flow testing and inspections started Wednesday and will take place daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m, according to Robbins Fire and Rescue.

The annual spring testing consists of evaluating fire flow, flushing water mains to discharge silt, and allows fire crews to make sure hydrants are working properly.

“Customers can expect discolored water during the time,” said Robbins Fire and Rescue on its social media page. “Water clarity should improve as crews move through your area. Please refrain from washing clothes until your water is clear.”

Some areas will see flowing water from hydrants to improve water clarity.
