The Peachtree City Fire Department will be conducting its semi-annual fire hydrant testing this month in accordance with national requirements.

These procedures may cause the water in your area to contain some sediment and you may notice that your water may be brownish in color, officials said. The situation can be resolved by flushing the home’s system until the water is clear again.
Residents should check their water prior to doing laundry to prevent any dirty water from entering their washing machine.

The department realizes this critical maintenance is an inconvenience to the public and asks for your understanding in the matter. The testing is important as the department continues to ensure your safety and provide you with the utmost service possible, fire officials said.
