The project is slated to begin on Monday, Sept. 10, and will take a couple of weeks to complete.
Crews will start flushing fire hydrants about 9 p.m. each day for several hours, gaining the information regarding the pressure and flow data that is required by the ISO, which regulates the fire insurance criteria for homeowners.
That data is important in the calculation of fire insurance premiums and needs to be as accurate as possible.
Over the course of the two weeks, every attempt will be made to minimize any negative effects of the flow testing.
Typically during this type of testing, it is not uncommon for turbidity to become high in the potable water and sometimes can appear to be brown water or very “foggy” water.
If this occurs, please flush the water in your house.
If the issue doesn’t clear up within a few minutes, call Ringgold City Hall at 706-935-3061.
